Beatitudes the name frequently given to the first clauses of our Savior's Sermon on the Mount (q.v.), beginning with the phrase '" Blessed," etc. (Mt 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).
