Definition
something handed down from the past
in various senses, including:
  • traditions — as in "Americans inherit a heritage of freedom"
  • cultural practices — as in "Hospitality to strangers is part of Arabic cultural heritage."
  • physical items built and/or protected from long ago — as in "The cathedral is a World Heritage site," or "The national parks are part of our heritage as Americans."
  • Just as incontestably as it was necessary to repay a debt was it necessary to keep the property in such a condition that his son, when he received it as a heritage, would say "thank you" to his father as Levin had said "thank you" to his grandfather for all he built and planted.
