Divinity

Divinity is seen as the existence of some entity or entities which are greater than humankind.

There are many forms of divinity, based upon the religious beliefs of the person or persons viewing the divine. In Christianity the concept of divinity is held in the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In other forms of religion (such as Norse mythology) the divine may be a pantheon of divine beings, each possessing or exemplifying a virture of daily life or emotion. In animist traditions, everything in the universe has a divine aspect.


In universities, Divinity is sometimes used as an abbreviated alternate name for the academic study of theology.


Divinity is also a nougat-like confectionery made with egg whites, corn syrup, sugar and chopped nuts. Replacing the sugar with brown sugar, and adding a small amount of vinegar results in "Sea Foam", according to Irmas S. Rombauer 's Joy of Cooking.
