I holiness, sanctity, LXX 2 Maccabees 3:12, Romans 1:4, etc.

II as title, PMeyer 24.2 (vi A. D.).

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἁγιωσύνη (on the omega ω see references in ἀγαθωσύνη, at the beginning), (ης, , a word unknown to secular authors (Buttmann, 73 (64));

1. (God's incomparable) majesty (joined to μεγαλοπρέπεια, Psalm 95:6 (), cf. Psalm 144:5 ()): πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης a spirit to which belongs ἁγιωσύνη, not equivalent to πνεῦμα ἅγιον, but the divine (?) spiritual nature in Christ as contrasted with his σάρξ, Romans 1:4; cf. Rückert at the passage, and Zeller in his Theol. Jahrbb. for 1842, p. 486 ff; (yet cf. Meyer at the passage; Gifford (in the Speaker's Commentary). Most commentators (cf. e. g. Ellicott on Thess. as below) regard the word as uniformly and only signifying holiness).

2. moral purity: 1 Thessalonians 3:13; 2 Corinthians 7:1.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Ἁγιότης, as a title, is found in the late P Giss I. 55.5 (vi/A.D.) addressed by one ";papa"; or ";bishop"; to another—ἠξιώθην. . . γράψαι πρ [ ]ς τὴν σὴν ἁγιότητ ̣[α ]. For a similar use of ἡ ἁγιωσύνη with reference to an ἐπίσκοπος, see the Pelagia-Legenden (ed. Usener) p. 10.2, cf. p. 8.11. On the ";profane"; warrant for ἁγιωσύνη, and the naturalness of coining (with ἱερ (ε)ωσύνη for model), see the remarks on ἀγαθωσύνη above.
