Paroikia - Παροικία
Untitled (Life Without Tragedy Series) 2015
The word Paroikia – Παροικία meaning sojourning in a foreign land comes from the ancient Greek word πάροικοσ – dwelling beside, stranger, soujourner is comprised of the prefix παρά (pará) meaning beside or near and suffix – οίκοσ (oîkos) meaning home or family. This mutated through latinisation of the Greek to the French paroisse eventually to the English word parish, or community.
