[Middle English, from Latin Tuscānus, Etruscan, from Tuscus, an Etruscan.]deity
IN BRIEF: A god, goddess, or divine person.
We should worship as though the deity were present. — Confucius (c. 551-c. 479 BC).
The English word "deity" derives from the Latin "deus," ("God"). Related are words for "sky": the Latin "dies" ("day") and "divum" ("open sky"), and the Sanskrit "div," "diu" ("sky," "day," "shine"). Also related are "divine" and "divinity," from the Latin "divinus," from "divus." The English word "God" comes from the Anglo-Saxon, and similar words are found in many Germanic languages (e.g. the German "Gott" — "God").
