- n. A holy writing.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Beecher was not free -- he was bound by a hagiograph riveted upon his soul; and so to a degree his whole nature was cramped and tortured in his struggles between the "natural man" and the "spiritual."
You see, after Jay Matthews of Washington Post wrote Rhee's hagiograph, er, article, Somerby decided to ask Matthew how he could be so darn certain that Rhee's students had indeed performed as astoundingly as everyone claimed.
