the name frequently given to the first clauses of our Savior's Sermon on the Mount (q.v.), beginning with the phrase " Blessed," etc. (Matthew 5:3-11). The present " Mount of the Beatitudes" on which they are said to have been delivered is the hill called Kurun Hattin, or "Horns of Hattin," on the road from Nazareth to Tiberias-a not unlikely position (Hackett, Illustr. of Script. p. 313).
