The word "hermeneutics" refers to the art and science of interpreting
written texts. Within Christianity, the term generally refers to methods of
interpreting the Bible.
The term was derived from the Pagan Greek. Hermes was the son of Zeus and a
Maia, the eldest of the seven Pleiades. He was the messenger of the gods, and identified with the Roman god Mercury.
