THE TERM ἌΔΥΤΟΝ IN THE GREEK RELIGIOUS LEXICON FROM THE 8TH CENTURY BC TO THE 15TH CENTURY AD
(Výraz ἌΔΥΤΟΝ v gréckom náboženskom lexikóne od 8. storočia pr. Kr. do 15. storočia)
Abstract: In the long history of Greek reality, religiosity underwent substantial changes in its approaches and beliefs, a fact that also involved the need for linguistic adaptations in order to express new concepts and requirements of worship. Monolectic names or periphrasis influenced by the Greek philosophical tradition as a result of its use throughout the history of the Greek letters appear until today without losing their religious concept. For instance, the monolectic name ἄδυτον which appeared in the 8th century BC is being used until now.
