Acclamation is a term applied
(1) to certain short inscriptions expressed in the second person, and containing a wish or injunction, as Vivas in Deo. By far the greater part are sepulchral, but similar sentences are also seen on amulets (q.v.), on the bottom of cups, and on gems.
(2.) To the responsive cry or chant of the congregation in antiphonal singing. SEE. ANTIPHON.
