allusory (comparative more allusory, superlative most allusory)

  1. allusive; making allusion
    • William Warburton
      But those Sects, who oppose the doctrine of a real redemption, have always striven to evade the notion of a real sacrifice; as that on which the doctrine of Redemption is founded; upon pretence, that the scripture expressions of Christ's sacrifice were only figurative and allusory.
