The glossary gives a one-line definition of some of the technical terms used in the biographical entries. The glossary is available either as a sequential alphabetical listing, or as a pop-up definition from high-lighted works in the articles. The glossary entries are not intended to be definitive, merely to help the reader who encounters an unknown term. Fuller definitions are to be found in the standard reference works.
