Origin of sage

From Old French sage (11th century), from Vulgar Latin *sapius, from Latin sapere (“to taste, to discern, to be wise"), from Proto-Indo-European *sap- (“to taste"). The noun meaning "man of profound wisdom" is recorded from circa 1300. Originally applied to the Seven Sages of Greece.
