Immaculate-Conception Oath

is among the Roman Catholics the assurance by oath of a belief in and support of the doctrine of the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary. It was introduced by the Sorbonne in consequence of the disputes on this subject between the Franciscans and Dominicans (See IMMACULATE CONCEPTION), as a test oath for admission to an academical degree. The Jesuits made this a test oath also for other privileges. Theol. Univ. Lex. 1, 404. (J. H. W.)
