Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Convocation
     a meeting of a religious character as distinguished from
     congregation, which was more general, dealing with political and
     legal matters. Hence it is called an "holy convocation." Such
     convocations were the Sabbaths (Lev. 23:2, 3), the Passover (Ex.
     12:16; Lev. 23:7, 8; Num. 28:25), Pentecost (Lev. 23:21), the
     feast of Trumpets (Lev. 23:24; Num. 29:1), the feast of Weeks
     (Num. 28:26), and the feast of Tabernacles (Lev. 23:35, 36). The
     great fast, the annual day of atonement, was "the holy
     convocation" (Lev. 23:27; Num. 29:7).
     

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  CONVOCATION, eccles. law. This word literally signifies called together. The 
  assembly of the representatives of the clergy. As to the powers of 
  convocations, see Shelf. on M. & D. 23., See Court of Convocation.
