I was discussing my desire to have more intellectual conversations at work with a friend today and he offered me this word:
- An ancient Greek priest who interpreted sacred mysteries, especially the priest of the Eleusinian mysteries.
- An interpreter of sacred mysteries or arcane knowledge.
- One who explains or makes a commentary.
