What is Occult: Secret or Hidden Knowledge

|

By Morningbird

The word “occult” comes from the Latin occultus which means “hidden” or “secret” and the word occult refers to secret or hidden knowledge and typically refers to the paranormal.

The study of the occult is generally called occultism and people who study the occult are occultists.
