AdjectiveEdit

theosophic (not comparable)

  1. Of, or relating to theosophy.
    • 1856, Robert Alfred Vaughan, Hours with the mystics : a contribution to the history of religious opinion, volume 1, London: John W. Parker, OCLC 793717967, page 45:
      Thus, while the mystic of the theopathetic species is content to contemplate, to feel, or to act, suffering under Deity in his sublime passivity, the mysticism I term theosophic aspires to know and believes itself in possession of a certain supernatural divine faculty for that purpose.
