Appropriation

Additional Links

(Latin: appropriare, to make one's own)

In theology the attributing of certain names, qualities, or operations to one of the Persons of the Blessed Trinity in preference to, but not to the exclusion of, the others; thus we characterize the Father by omnipotence, the Son by wisdom, the Holy Ghost by love, though all Three possess these essentially and in an infinite degree.
