Den

Den: the power of lowness, including all things that live within that power. Accordingly, a down (den) is low land (in comparison with mountains but distinct from swamps) and a den is the lair or lie of an animal (and usually buried in the ground.) This spiritual term makes a distinction between the powers of beasts, which are of the earth, and those of people, who stand above it, and allows for both to rise above the power of death, which lies in the bogs of lowest ground. 33 more words
