1520s, from Spanish or Portuguese don, title of respect, from Latin dominus “lord, master.” The university sense is c. 1660, originally student slang; underworld sense is 1952, from Italian don, from Late Latin domnus, from Latin dominus (see domain). The fem. form is Dona (Spanish/Portuguese), Donna (Italian).
“one-tenth cent,” 1786, an original U.S. currency unit but now used only for tax calculation purposes shortening of Latin millesimum “one-thousandth,” from mille “a thousand” (see million). Formed on the analogy of cent, which is short for Latin centesimus “one hundredth” (of a dollar).
c. 1200, “to thank,” from Old French graciier “thank, give thanks to; praise,” from grace “mercy, favor, thanks, virtue” (see grace n.). Meaning “to show favor” (mid-15c.) led to that of “to lend or add grace to something” (1580s, as in grace us with your presence), which is the root of the musical sense in grace notes (1650s). Related: Graced; gracing.
late 12c., “God’s unmerited favor, love, or help,” from Old French grace “pardon, divine grace, mercy; favor, thanks; elegance, virtue” (12c., Modern French grâce), from Latin gratia “favor, esteem, regard; pleasing quality, good will, gratitude” (source of Italian grazia, Spanish gracia; in Church use translating Greek kharisma), from gratus “pleasing, agreeable,” from PIE *gwreto-, suffixed form of root *gwere- (3) “to favor” (cognates: Sanskrit grnati “sings, praises, announces,” Lithuanian giriu “to praise, celebrate,” Avestan gar- “to praise”).
Sense of “virtue” is early 14c., that of “beauty of form or movement, pleasing quality” is mid-14c. In classical sense, “one of the three sister goddesses (Latin Gratiæ, Greek Kharites), bestowers of beauty and charm,” it is first recorded in English 1579 in Spenser. In music, “an embellishment not essential to the melody or harmony,” 1650s. As the name of the short prayer that is said before or after a meal (early 13c.; until 16c. usually graces) it has a sense of “gratitude.” As a title of honor, c. 1500.
“an untruth,” Old English lyge “lie, falsehood,” from Proto-Germanic *lugiz (cognates: Old Norse lygi, Danish løgn, Old Frisian leyne (fem.), Dutch leugen (fem.), Old High German lugi, German Lüge, Gothic liugn “a lie”), from the root of lie (v.1). To give the lie to “accuse directly of lying” is attested from 1590s. Lie-detector first recorded 1909.

“The Trial of Jesus”
There is so much mysticism and confusion surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection that we lose sight of the fact that Jesus of Nazareth was a man tried before a court of men under laws of men, that he was convicted and executed as a man, and that for sheer drama the trial of Jesus surely matches any of the great courtroom stories in the history of human justice…
Matthew Henry’s Commentary – Luke Verses 39 – 46
We have here the awful story of Christ’s agony in the garden, just before he was betrayed, which was largely related by the other evangelists. In it Christ accommodated himself to that part of his undertaking which he was now entering upon—the making of his soul an offering for sin.

late 14c., “civil officer in charge of administering laws,” from Old French magistrat, from Latin magistratus “a magistrate, public functionary,” originally “magisterial rank or office,” from magistrare “serve as a magistrate,” from magister “chief, director” (see master). Related: Magistracy.
intr. To domineer, or behave like a master.
1660s, “action of employing,” from French emploi, from Middle French verb employer (see employ v.). From 1709 as “state of being employed.”
early 15c., “apply or devote (something to some purpose); expend or spend,” from Old French emploiier (12c.) “make use of, apply; increase; entangle; devote,” from Latin implicare “enfold, involve, be connected with, unite, associate,” from assimilated form of in- (see in- (2)) + plicare “to fold” (see ply (v.1)). Imply, which is the same word, retains more of the original sense. Sense of “hire, engage” first recorded in English 1580s, from meaning “involve in a particular purpose,” which arose in Late Latin. Related: Employed; employing; employable.
word-forming element meaning “put in or into, bring to a certain state,” sometimes intensive, from French assimilation of en- “in, into” (see en- (1)) to following labial stop (-b-, -p-, and often -m-), or from the same development in later Latin in- (to im-). “This rule was not fully established in spelling before the 17th c.” [OED], but it is likely the pronunciation shift was in Old French and Middle English and spelling was slow to conform. Also a living prefix in English used to form verbs from adjectives and nouns (embitter, embody). In words such as emancipate, emerge, emit, emotion the e- is a reduced form of Latin ex- (see ex-) before -m-.

Meaning “main, principal, chief, dominant, most important” is from early 15c. in English. Capital letter for an upper case one is attested from late 14c. The modern informal sense of “excellent, first-rate” is dated from 1762 in OED (as an exclamation of approval, OED’s first example is 1875), perhaps from earlier use of the word in reference to ships, “first-rate, powerful enough to be in the line of battle,” attested from 1650s, fallen into disuse after 1918.
A capital crime (1520s) is one that affects the life or “head;” capital had a sense of “deadly, mortal” from late 14c. in English, a sense also found in Latin.

Capital gain is recorded from 1921. Capital goods is recorded from 1899. Related: Capitally.

From late 14c. as “security, safety, stability; state of peace,” also “certainty, certitude; confidence.” Meaning “one who makes himself responsible for another” is from early 15c. Until 1966, the French national criminal police department was the Sûreté nationale.
Etymology: Middle English, Old French cunestable, conestable (modern French connétable = Provençal conestable, Spanish condestable, Portuguese condestavel, Italian conestabile), repr. late Latin comes stabulī count or officer of the stable, marshal (in the Theodosian Code a.d. 438, Gregory of Tours 575), corresponding to the earlier tribūnus stabulī (Ammianus), whence later comesta-, conestabulus: Skeat quotes from a document under date 807, ‘comes stabuli quem corrupte conestabulum appellamus’. Other medieval Latin forms were comestabilis, conestabilis, etc.: see Du Cange. The early development of the sense, whereby the comes stabuli, from being the head groom of the stable, became the principal officer of the household of the Frankish kings, and of the great feudatories, and the field-marshal or commander-general of the army, had taken place before the word came into English; the development was parallel to that of marshal. The earlier English uses were simply taken over from French.

For distinction of use, see see averse. Related: Adversely.
c. 1200, aduersite “misfortune, hardship, difficulty,” from Old French aversité “adversity, calamity, misfortune; hostility, wickedness, malice” (Modern French adversité), from Latin adversitatem (nominative adversitas) “opposition,” from adversus (see adverse).
mid-14c., aduersere, from Anglo-French adverser (13c.), Old French adversaire “adversary, opponent, enemy,” or directly from Latin adversarius “opponent, adversary, rival,” noun use of adjective meaning “opposite, hostile, contrary,” literally “turned toward one,” from adversus “turned against” (see adverse). The Latin word is glossed in Old English by wiðerbroca.

It is like a surname: if the name is “I am Christian,” the surname is “I belong to the Church.”
We are not isolated and we are not Christians as individuals, each one on his own. No. Our Christian identity is belonging! We are Christians because we belong to the Church. It is like a surname: if the name is I am Christian, the surname is I belong to the Church. It is beautiful to note how this belonging is expressed also in the name that God attributes to Himself. Responding to Moses, in the wonderful episode of the burning bush (cf. Exodus 3:15), He describes Himself, in fact, as the God of the Fathers. He does not say: I am Omnipotent …, no: I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob. In this way, he calls us to enter into this relation that precedes us. God’s relation with His people precedes us all, it comes from that time. audience address on belonging to the church
