<p>"This is our first theatrical performance where our theatre is now complete. Young audience members will be <em>edified</em> by being around lots of amazing women's stories, and the old ones will be reminded of the progress that we have made." — Cate Belleveau, quoted in <em>The Bemidji (Minnesota) Pioneer</em>, 29 Sept. 2021

<strong>Did you know?</strong><br />
<p><em>Edify</em> comes from the Latin verb <em>aedificare</em>, meaning "to instruct or improve spiritually"; it is based on <em>aedes</em>, the word for "temple." <em>Edify</em> shares the spiritual meaning of its Latin root, but it is also used in general contexts to refer to the act of instructing in a way that improves the mind or character overall.
