Where is Apotheosis from?

Among the ancient Greeks, it was sometimes thought fitting—or simply handy, say if you wanted a god somewhere in your bloodline — to grant someone or other “god” status.

So they created the word apotheosis, from the verb apotheoun, meaning “to deify.” (The prefix apo- can mean “off,” “from,” or “away,” and theos is the Greek word for “god.”)

There’s not a lot of Greek-style apotheosizing in the 21st century, but there is hero-worship.

Our extended use of apotheosis as “elevation to divine status” is the equivalent of “placement on a very high pedestal.”

Even more common these days is to use apotheosis in reference to a perfect example or ultimate form.

For example, one might describe a movie as “the apotheosis of the sci-fi movie genre.”
