Origin of bible

From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- English from the 14th century, from Middle Latin biblia (“book”) (reinterpreted as a feminine from earlier Latin neuter plural biblia (“books”)), from Ancient Greek βιβλία (biblia, “books”), plural of βιβλίον (biblion, “small book”), originally a diminutive of βίβλος (biblos, “book”), from βύβλος (bublos, “papyrus”) (from the ancient Phoenician city of Byblos which exported this writing material).
- Old English used biblioðece (from βιβλιοθήκη) for "the Scriptures".
