  Scrupulosity \Scru`pu*los"i*ty\
     (skr[udd]`p[-u]*l[o^]s"[i^]*t[y^]), n. [L. scrupulositas.]
     The quality or state of being scrupulous; doubt; doubtfulness
     respecting decision or action; caution or tenderness from the
     fear of doing wrong or offending; nice regard to exactness
     and propriety; precision.

     [1913 Webster]
           The first sacrilege is looked on with horror; but when
           they have made the breach, their scrupulosity soon
           retires.                                 --Dr. H. More.
     [1913 Webster]
           Careful, even to scrupulosity, . . . to keep their
           Sabbath.                                 --South.
     [1913 Webster]
