very religious; or having enthusiastic support (for something)
  • At length her Grace rose, and with modest paces Came to the altar; where she kneel'd, and saintlike Cast her fair eyes to heaven and pray'd devoutly; Then rose again and bow'd her to the people, When by the Archbishop of Canterbury She had all the royal makings of a queen, As holy oil, Edward Confessor's crown, The rod, and bird of peace, and all such emblems Laid nobly on her; which perform'd, the choir, With all the choicest music of the kingdom, Together sung "Te Deum."
    4.1 — Act 4 Scene 1 — A street in Westminster (77% in)
