Divinity and '''divine''' (sometimes 'the Divinity' or 'the Divine'), are broadly applied but loosely defined terms, used variously within different faiths and belief systems — and even by different individuals within a given faith — to refer to some [[transcendent]] or [[transcendental]] power, or its attributes or manifestations in the world. The root of the words is literally '[[Godlike]]' (from the Latin 'Deus,' cf. Dyaus, closely related to Greek '[[Zeus]]' and [[Deva]] in [[Sanskrit]]), but the use varies significantly depending on the underlying conception of god that is being invoked. This article outlines the major distinctions in the conventional use of the terms.

Divinity and divine (sometimes 'the Divinity' or 'the Divine'), are broadly applied but loosely defined terms, used variously within different faiths and belief systems — and even by different individuals within a given faith — to refer to some transcendent or transcendental power, or its attributes or manifestations in the world. The root of the words is literally 'Godlike' (from the Latin 'Deus,' cf. Dyaus, closely related to Greek 'Zeus' and Deva in Sanskrit), but the use varies significantly depending on the underlying conception of god that is being invoked. [1]

Deity is the source of all that which is divine. Deity is characteristically and invariably divine, but all that which is divine is not necessarily Deity, though it will be co-ordinated with Deity and will tend towards some phase of unity with Deity--spiritual, mindal, or personal. (0:1.5)
