Word of The Day: Eschatology

Eschatology |ˌeskəˈtäləjē|
The part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind.

ORIGIN mid 19th cent.: from Greek eskhatos ‘last’ + -logy .

I got that from the Apple Dictionary (New Oxford American English). There’s other results from reference.com and so on.

I saw the word whilst reading Microserfs today and admit it’s one theological word I hadn’t heard before. Surely there’s a business plan positively dying for this word?
