Εἰρήνη κυρίου, Vulgate Domini pax), the appellation given by Gideon to an altar erected by him on the spot where the divine angel appeared to him and wrought the miracles which confirmed his mission; in commemoration of the success thus betokened to him ("Peace be unto thee"); stated to have been extant at a late day in Ophrah (Jg 6:24).
