EnglishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From French bigot (a sanctimonious person; a religious hypocrite), from Middle French bigot, from Old French bigot, of uncertain origin. It is often thought to derive from an Old French derogatory term applied to the religious Normans, said to be known for frequently swearing "by God" (compare Old English bī god, Middle High German bī got, Middle Dutch bi gode); compare the French use of "goddams" to refer to the English in Joan of Arc's time. Liberman however thinks this has "too strong a taste of a folk etymological guess invented in retrospect" and prefers Grammont et al.'s theory that it derives from Albigot (Albigensian heretic).[1]
