Epiphany

Epiphany refers to a Christian holiday that celebrates the physical manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles; it can also be used to refer to a manifestation or appearance of a deity or divine being, or could be used to describe a sudden realization or discovery into something, either personal, religious, scientific, or philosophic. The name itself comes from Ancient Greek epipháneia meaning “manifestation, striking appearance” made up from epi- (upon) and phaino (I shine, to bring light).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
