The word mystery comes from the Greek word myo and means “to close or shut.” initiated

From this same root comes the word mystes, which means “[an] initiate”.

The initiates of the sacred mysteries were a distinct group of enlightened humans who were a separate class from those people whom they called the profane.

A word that is derived from the Latin profanus which means "outside the temple, not sacred,’ or the uninitiated."
