13th March: THEOLOGY Θεολογία

Posted Sunday March 13, 2016 by Despina K

Welcome to Day 13 of Speak Greek in March:


Theology translates into English from the Greek theologia (θεολογία) which derived from Τheos (Θεός), meaning “God,” and -logia (-λογία),[12] meaning “utterances, sayings, or oracles” (a word related tologos [λόγος], meaning “word, discourse, account, or reasoning“) which had passed into Latin as theologia and into French as théologie. The English equivalent “theology” (Theologie, Teologye) had evolved by 1362.[13] The sense the word has in English depends in large part on the sense the Latin and Greek equivalents had acquired in Patristic andmedieval Christian usage, though the English term has now spread beyond Christian contexts.

Προέρχεται από τις λέξεις «Θεός» και «λόγος». Είναι, δηλαδή, η συστηματική μελέτη θρησκευτικών ζητημάτων.
