Word of the Week: H.P. Lovecraft Month
blasphemous (adj.): sacrilegious against God or sacred things; profane. [Oxford English Dictionary]
Blasphemy, from the Greek blasphēmía (βλασφημία), ‘profanity’, was once a powerful force in the Anglophone world, taken very seriously and at the heart of artistic controversies (Blasphemy was abolished as a crime in the UK in 2008). Blasphemous is therefore in relatively rare usage today, seeming somewhat archaic, even backward.
‘Blasphemous’ was also one of H.P Lovecraft’s favourite words, used figuratively to describe things so alien or horrific to human perception, that they seem to offend humanity itself.
