AUTOCRASY (αὐτός, self; and
κρατέω, to rule).—Underived power. Absolute power
within the being itself. "The Divine will is absolute, it is its own reason, it
is both the producer and the ground of all its acts. It moves not by the
external impulse or inclination of objects, but determines itself by an absolute
autocracy " (South, vol. VII. ser. X.).
