Theosophy: any number of philosophies maintaining that a knowledge of God may be achieved through spiritual ecstasy, direct intuition, or special individual relations, especially the movement founded in 1875 as the Theosophical Society by Helena Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott.

ORIGIN: mid 17th Century, from medieval Latin "theosophia", from late Greek, from "theosophos" 'wise concerning God', from "theos" 'God' + "sophos" 'wise'.
