break of day


Explanation:
Aveţi dreptate, sensul popular al cuvântului este "zorii zilei"...
Astfel se pot lua în considerare şi echivalentele dawn sau daybreak, dar, după părerea mea "break of day" poartă oarecum aceeaşi nuanţă stilistică ca şi "zorii zilei".

sunrise / dawn


Explanation:
These three terms all signify the same point in time, at the beginning of the day. However, in a religious context, the idea of "sunrise" is usually more commonly referred to.

(You could say daybreak, but this is not so appropriate in a "religious" context"

Example sentence(s):
  • "...held in the hours of darkness between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter Day..."

dawn prayer


Explanation:
Ritualul probabil include rugaciuni specifice pt. diverse momente ale zile. Nu vad nici o alta semnificatie religioasa a "albei".
