Enchiridion is a Late Latin term (derived from the Greek word ἐγχειρίδιον (enkheiridion)) referring to a small manual or handbook. Some notable enchiridia include: Enchiridion of Epictetus, a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian (2nd century) ;

'Quizzity'
Imma guess inborn inquisitiveness.

hmm...from what I could find "strangeness, oddness" Seemingly a childlike curiosity of something that is "strange/odd" if I had to "feel" the word.

It is interesting that quizzical (which I was trying to use when guessing) doesn't really capture the essence except in the rarer sense (which I didn't realize it did) quizzical was always hard to figure out what it meant in a book lol. Other than eccentric.

I appreciate this word as it could be used to describe an anomaly but I like the fact that, to the Lord it is not. It's how he made it to be :)




Hmm, would like to follow that up with a related term but other than weird I can't think of anything cool enough...


So I'll just go with something we all have to deal with.

Pecuniary.

Mammon
Hehe I was trying to create a combo word to summarize mammon last night but gave up...pernicious pennies?

Money as a love/idol/lust/object of worship. Antithetical to our walk as believers...set up against the image (of yeshua) that we are called to bear :)

Do you have a word for us to learn?
Well I did give a rather obscure word that is not used in most dictionaries (escot). Here is Merriam-Webster's def.

History and Etymology for escot

Anglo-French escoter, from escot contribution, of Germanic origin; akin to Old Norse skot contribution, shot.

Let's try a more common one: Capote

Imperturbability, sereneness, calm.

Interesting as it seems to be an almost "nirvana" for Epicureans and Stoics. I can see how this would be the case. Or the ideal state for a soldier entering battle. ~Wikipedia.


Hootenanny (was one of my favorite words circa 9 years old ;) )

goods thrown into the sea with a buoy attached so that they may be found again

specifically goods that can be recovered again after being lost.

Quite interesting because treasure hunting is definitely something that a worthy pursuit in my book as a hobby.

Was thinking of a cross between petticoat and valise somehow.

Either a hungarian military uniform worn by "hussars" which was a calvary regiment. Essentially a cloak worn over the shoulder to prevent sword cuts.

OR Ladies fashion in 19th century Europe, which looks more like a cloak.

I read a historical fiction novel once about the civil war and one of the characters joined an army group called "Malcomb's hussars" so now I have a little bit of context lol.
