  • The idea that a point is factual or a proposition is true or valid, based on a previous decision or judgment that confirms that something is true. An affirmation can also be a solemn declaration that is made under oath in a court of law. The privilege of affirming was first granted to the Quakers during the reign of William III (king of England, Scotland, and Ireland, 1689–1702). Later, this privilege was granted to other people. An affirmation can be given in place of an oath when the person has no religious ties.
