bash startup scripts - what is an "interactive login" ??

Can anyone clarify for me when the ~/.bash_rc and /etc/bash.bashrc scripts get sourced?  I read from the man and googling that it is only when an "interactive login" shell is created, but what does that mean?  If I create a new xterm do these scripts get sourced or is it only if I do an rlogin, ssh, login ,etc?
