Etymology[уреди]

From Средњи Енглески bible, from Middle Латински biblia (book) (misinterpreted as a feminine from earlier Latin neuter plural biblia (books)), from Антички Грчки βιβλία (biblía, books), plural of βιβλίον (biblíon, small book), originally a diminutive of βίβλος (bíblos, book), from βύβλος (búblos, papyrus) (from the ancient Phoenician city of Byblos which exported this writing material).

Old English used biblioþēce (from βιβλιοθήκη) and ġewritu (> English writs) for "the Scriptures".
