DULIA (Latinized form of the Gk. dottleia, "servitude, service "): The name technically applied in Roman Catholic theology to the veneration accorded to the saints and angels, and sharply distinguished (in kind, not alone in degree) from latria (Gk. latrriu), or the worship due to God alone. Hyperdulaa is a somewhat higher degree of veneration paid to the Virgin Mary on account of her intimate relation to God. Dulia, is expressed by external seta of reverence and by invocation, and may be extended, in the former shape at least, to objects closely connected with the saints, such as their garments and other relics and their images, which


are, however, venerated not for any intrinsic virtue of their own, but only with respect to those whom they represent or with whom they are associated. See Saints, Veneration Of.

DULLES, dul'ez, JOSEPH HEATLY: Presbyterian; b. at Philadelphia, Pa., May 27, 1853. He was educated at Princeton College (B. A.,1873) and Princeton Theolbgical Seminary, from which he was graduated in 1877. After pastoral service at home (1877-83) and travel and study in Europe (1883-85), he became librarian of Princeton Theological Seminary (1886). He is a member of the American Historical Association, honorary secretary of the Palestine Exploration Fund for New Jersey, an editor of the Princeton Theological Review. In theology he is a conservative. He compiled the general catalogue of Princeton Theological Seminary (Philadelphia, 1894) and James McCosh bibliography (Princeton, 1895), and edited the proceedings of William Henry Green's jubilee as instructor in Princeton Theological Seminary, contributing Professor Green's bibliography (New York, 1896).

DU MOULIN, dii mfi"lan', CHARLES: French jurist; b. in Paris 1500; d. there Dec. 27, 1566. He became an advocate in 1522, but gave up pleading because of a defect of speech. He joined the Reformed congregation in 1542. Later he became famous as a consulting lawyer. In 1551 he published his Commentaire sur lidit des petites dates to show that Henry II. was right in forbidding the exportation of gold and silver from his kingdom to Rome. The argument was effective, and the pope dropped the question so far as Henry was concerned, but he had the author tried for heresy. This resulted in the flight of Du Moulin; and from this time till his death he was pursued by the Roman Church, being forced to move from one place to another. Finally he returned to Paris, where he was prevailed upon to publish his Conseil sur le fait du Concile de Trente (Lyons, 1564). The book was condemned and Du Moulin was imprisoned; but he was afterward released through the efforts of Jeanne d'Albret.
