Dear knowledgeable folks,
I was wondering: does the Greek term for salvation, "sotitia," have the "medicinal" connotations in it, like the Latin term "salvatus" (apparently, "salve" is a medicine)?
Salve means hi (singular) Salvete hi plural.
Salus Salutis means Salvation, but in Vulgar Latin it came to mean health (spanish salud), and Salvatio Salvationis came to mean Salvation (so Salvation is actually a Latin word in English).
to save in late latin is salvare (to be saved salvari continuous, perfect is salvatus sum) the original was Salvus Fieri ( to become saved) and Salvum Facere (to make saved) Salvum me fac Domine (save me Lord).
so the words to Save, Saviour (Lt. salvator), Salvation all come from Latin.
