Hello

I don't really understand the meaning of the expression "to give abode"

Here some context:

The Cemetery welcomes and gives abode to the dead and the Museum researches, preserves and disseminates aesthetic manifestations, architecture and ritual practices.

    It provides a home, a place to reside; "morada" sounds about right. "To give abode to" is a fairly archaic / literary expression.
