  Light \Light\ (l[imac]t), n. [OE. light, liht, AS. le['i]ht;
     akin to OS. lioht, D. & G. licht, OHG. lioht, Goth.
     liuha[thorn], Icel. lj[=o]s, L. lux light, lucere to shine,
     Gr. leyko`s white, Skr. ruc to shine. [root]122. Cf. {Lucid},
     {Lunar}, {Luminous}, {Lynx}.]
     1. That agent, force, or action in nature by the operation of
        which upon the organs of sight, objects are rendered
        visible or luminous.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Light was regarded formerly as consisting of material
           particles, or corpuscules, sent off in all directions
           from luminous bodies, and traversing space, in right
           lines, with the known velocity of about 186,300 miles
           per second; but it is now generally understood to
           consist, not in any actual transmission of particles or
           substance, but in the propagation of vibrations or
           undulations in a subtile, elastic medium, or ether,
           assumed to pervade all space, and to be thus set in
           vibratory motion by the action of luminous bodies, as
           the atmosphere is by sonorous bodies. This view of the
           nature of light is known as the undulatory or wave
           theory; the other, advocated by Newton (but long since
           abandoned), as the corpuscular, emission, or Newtonian
           theory. A more recent theory makes light to consist in
           electrical oscillations, and is known as the
           electro-magnetic theory of light.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. That which furnishes, or is a source of, light, as the
        sun, a star, a candle, a lighthouse, etc.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Then he called for a light, and sprang in. --Acts
                                                    xvi. 29.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              And God made two great lights; the greater light to
              rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the
              night.                                --Gen. i. 16.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. The time during which the light of the sun is visible;
        day; especially, the dawn of day.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The murderer, rising with the light, killeth the
              poor and needy.                       --Job xxiv.
                                                    14.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. The brightness of the eye or eyes.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              He seemed to find his way without his eyes;
              For out o'door he went without their helps,
              And, to the last, bended their light on me. --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     5. The medium through which light is admitted, as a window,
        or window pane; a skylight; in architecture, one of the
        compartments of a window made by a mullion or mullions.

              against light in three ranks.         --I Kings
