DOMINION

Ownership of material goods, entitling the owner to proprietary rights, i.e., to use, change, keep, or dispose of what one owns. Christianity views dominion as not absolute, but always relative to the common good of society. (Etym. Latin dominium, dominion, might, power; from dominus, master.)
