Usage examples for illumine

  1. If it has been done " to the Lord"- that is to say, with sincerity and freedom from affectation- whether with conscious effusion, as by Gaudenzio, or with perhaps robuster unconsciousness, as by Tabachetti, a halo will gather round it that will illumine it though it pass through the valley of the shadow of death itself. – Ex Voto by Samuel Butler
