Definition of Elements

The forces of nature. Violent or severe weather. The ultimate undecomposable parts which unite to form anything. Popularly, fire, air, earth, and water, anciently supposed to be the four simple bodies of which the world was composed. Often applied in a particular sense to wind and water, as “the fury of the elements.” Fire and water as elements included in the expression “damages by the elements” means the same thing as “damages by the act of God.”
