Thaumaturgy \THAW-muh-tuhr-jee\, noun:
1. The performance of miracles or magic.
2. Brandon's smile
There was ever a cautious hesitancy on the part of the clergy to recognize evidence of thaumaturgy, and the superstitious use of relics. Although in the case of Brandon, one is inclined to believe in such based on the evidence.
