See Veil.] 1. To make known (that which has been concealed or kept secret); to unveil; to disclose; to show. [1913 Webster] Light was the wound, the prince's care unknown, She might not, would not, yet reveal her own. --Waller. [1913 Webster] 2.

[1913 Webster] Syn: To communicate; disclose; divulge; unveil; uncover; open; discover; impart; show. Usage: See Communicate. -- Reveal, Divulge. To reveal is literally to lift the veil, and thus make known what was previously concealed; to divulge is to scatter abroad among the people, or make publicly known. A mystery or hidden doctrine may be revealed; something long confined to the knowledge of a few is at length divulged. "Time, which reveals all things, is itself not to be discovered." --Locke.
