Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The comparative neglect of the New Testament in favor of the Old in contemporary preaching; the use and nature of the expository method -- no less than the unworshipful character of our services -- appear to me to offer a final and conclusive proof of the unreligious overhumanistic emphases of our interpretation of religion.

    Preaching and Paganism

  • Music itself, his great goddess, became unworshipful, wearying to his very soul.

    The Genius

  • Previously to 1900, although second-hand booksellers had, I believe, occasionally attributed to Fielding the pamphlet known as An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews, April 1741, no one had devoted much attention to that unworshipful performance.

    Fielding

    Fielding

    Fielding

  • The more I consider that strange inversion of idolatry which is the motive of Guy Fawkes Day and which annually animates the by-streets with the sound of processionals and of recessionals -- a certain popular version of "Lest we forget" their unvaried theme; the more I hear the cries of derision raised by the makers of this likeness of something unworshipful on the earth beneath, so much the more am I convinced that the national humour is that of banter, and that no other kind of mirth so gains as does this upon the public taste.
