Meaning & History
From Ancient Greek Δημιουργός (Demiourgos) meaning "public worker" or "skilled worker" from the Greek elements demos "common people" and ergos "work". In the Gnostic system this is the name of the creator of the material world (and sometimes of evil), a deity inferior to the Supreme Being.
