Sepulchre is a burial vault, tomb, or grave. Sepulchre derives from the Latin root sepelire (to bury) and came to use in Middle English through Anglo-French means. Sepulchre was first used around the beginning of the 13th century.
Sepulchre is a rather rare word since the terms burial, grave, and tomb are far more often used. Sepulchre also has the spelling variant of sepulcher.
A spooky, creepy sepulchre haunted by various spirits.
Since it’s the full on season of spooky, and I’m fond of anything strange and unusual, I figured that sepulchre was a fantastically unique word ideal for sharing! Have you ever heard or used sepulchre in your day-to-day?
