Sacrifice (via Old French from Latin sacrificium, from sacra ""sacred rites"" + facere, ""to do, perform"") is the religious practice of offering food, objects (typically valuables), or the lives of animals or people to the gods as an act of propitiation or worship. While sacrifice often implies ritual killing, the term offering can be used for bloodless sacrifices of cereal food or artefacts. For offerings of liquids (beverages) by pouring, the term libation is used.
