(Ch.) It has been called dura, because of its great resistance; and mater, because it was believed to give rise to every membrane of the body. (F.) Dure mere, Dure-taye (Pare) It is a fibrous, semi-transparent membrane, of a pearly-white colour, thick, and very resisting; lines the cavity of the cranium, and contains the spinal marrow; protects the brain and marrow; and, by its various expansions -the falx cerebri, tentorium, &c, -supports the different parts of the cerebral mass. The largest artery of the dura mater is the A. meningoea media.
