1. Existence everywhere, or in places, at the same time; omnipresence; as, the ubiquity of God is not disputed by those who admit his existence. "The arms of Rome . . . Were impeded by . . . The wide spaces to be traversed and the ubiquity of the enemy." (C. Merivale)

2. The doctrine, as formulated by Luther, that Christ's glorified body is omnipresent.

Origin: L. Ubique everywhere, fr. Ubi where, perhaps for cubi, quobi (cf. Alicubi anywhere), and if so akin to E. Who: cf. F. Ubiquite.
