For the literal sense ";enlighten,"; ";illumine,"; as in Luk. 11:36, cf. Wünsch AF p. 16.13 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν φωτίζοντα καὶ σκοτίζοντα τὸν κόσμον. The metaph. usage ";bring to light,"; ";make known,"; as in 2Ti. 1:10 (cf. LXX 4 Kingd 17.27 f.), may be illustrated by Polyb. xxx. 8. 1, Epict. i. 4. 31.For the mystical sense of spiritual illumination, as in Eph. 1:18, see s.v. φωτισμός.
