Our word came into English in the mid-1600s
Background / Comments
I know the word polymath, which refers to a person who has learning in many fields. Our word was coined after that one, and refers to the learning, rather than the person. It comes from the Greek word polymathía, which comes from poly- (many; much) and mathēs, a derivative of manthánein (to learn).
