[ noun ] undisputed credibility

Used in print

(The Christian Science Monitor,...)

Strange , but true - authenticity and realism often are n't related at_all .

In any given period_piece the costumes , bric-a-brac , vehicles , and decor , bear the stamp of unimpeachable authenticity .

But , alas , the authenticity seems to stop at the set 's edge .

The drama itself - and this seems to be lavishly true of Biblical drama - often has hardly any relationship with authenticity at_all .

And to an industry that prides itself on authenticity , he urged greater realism .
