What an Italian asks for when he's thirsty. (Think Antonio, the cab driver from wings, ordering an 'iced coke')

...am I close? ...even a little?

Drat.

Oooo...good try. You get an A for effort. Good job!

You would be correct if this wasn't a blog "dedicated to the historical Reformed Faith." But hey, even the reformers used great humor...

I'm not smart enough to read your blog! :(

Me either! :~) You got me on that word's meaning for sure!

There is a book called Commentary On The Isagoge Of Porphyry. I know this from my Britannica Great Books.

Porphyry spoke and said things against Christians. I know this from my book, History Of The Christian Church ( Philip Schaff)

However I do not know what the word means. But, I will give it a stab in the dark. Can I keep guessing till I get it right?

Since, it is asociated with commentary, and of someone namely here Porphyry, I'll say, does it mean to study the life of someone...or to make mention...to study someones theology...to introduce...to include...an introduction.... Well, I hate to say this ,but I give up!

This word has something to do with Christianity?
I guess I'll find out tomorrow.
