From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Reveal \Re*veal"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Revealed; p. pr. & vb.
     n. Revealing.] [F. r['e]v['e]ler, L. revelare, revelatum,
     to unveil, reveal; pref. re- re- + velare to veil; fr. velum
     a veil. See Veil.]
     1. To make known (that which has been concealed or kept
        secret); to unveil; to disclose; to show.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Light was the wound, the prince's care unknown,
              She might not, would not, yet reveal her own.
                                                    --Waller.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Specifically, to communicate (that which could not be
        known or discovered without divine or supernatural
        instruction or agency).
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: To communicate; disclose; divulge; unveil; uncover;
          open; discover; impart; show.
  
     Usage: See Communicate. -- Reveal, Divulge. To reveal
            is literally to lift the veil, and thus make known
            what was previously concealed; to divulge is to
            scatter abroad among the people, or make publicly
            known. A mystery or hidden doctrine may be revealed;
            something long confined to the knowledge of a few is
            at length divulged. "Time, which reveals all things,
            is itself not to be discovered." --Locke. "A tragic
            history of facts divulged." --Wordsworth.
            [1913 Webster]
