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.
