Sorry, no etymologies found.
Multitudes presented themselves to the magistrates to express their compliance with the imperial edict and to these apostates tickets were issued attesting the fact that they had offered sacrifice (sacrificati) or burned incense (thurificati), while others, without actually performing these rites, availed themselves of the venality of the magistrates to purchase certificates attesting their renunciation (libellatici).
Those, who of their own accord had actually sacrificed (the sacrificati or thurificati), might be reconciled with the Church only at the point of death.
+ sacrificati, thurificati, who had taken part in the pagan rites, or
(the sacrificati and the thurificati) also received a certificate of having done so.
