E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
An inferior degree of worship or veneration, such as that paid by Roman Catholics to saints and angels; Hyper-duli’a is a superior sort of veneration reserved for the Virgin; but that worship which is paid to God alone is called latri’a. “Dulia” means that sort of veneration which slaves pay to their lords (Greek, doulos, a slave); “Latria” means that sort of veneration which mortals pay to the gods (Greek, latreu’o, to worship the gods).   1
