Idealized radiation, produced by an object which is a perfect absorber and emitter of radiation.
Any object surface can radiate heat to and receive heat from outside, if an object can absorb all the incident radiation, regardless of the frequencies and directions, this object is called Black Body. A ball cavity with a small hole can be regarded as a black body, since any radiation entering the ball cavity can only reflect inside it, thus totally absorbed.
light or other electromagnetic radiation emitted due to heat by a solid, liquid or dense gas, with no color of its own (hence "black"). Distinguished by a continuous distribution of spectral color, with its peak of emission shifting towards shorter wavelengths as the temperature increases--e.g. infra-red for a warm hand, red for a hot iron bar, yellow for the glowing filament in a lightbulb.
