Obsequium

(Lat. obedience) is the unconditional surrender of one's will to another's authority, as demanded of monks and nuns by their monastic vows. (See OBEDIENCE). Also the name of the prison in which those who overstep their vows are put; also the office for the departed, and sometimes also the solemn funeral service. (See BURIAL).
