Thayer's Expanded Definition

κοσμοκράτωρ, κοσμοκρατορος, (κόσμος and κρατέω), lord of the world, prince of this age: the devil and demons are called in plural οἱ κοσμοκρατορες τοῦ σκότους τοῦ αἰῶνος (but critical editions omit τοῦ αἰῶνος) τούτου (R. V. the world-rulers of this darkness), Ephesians 6:12; cf. 11; John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4; see ἄρχων. (The word occurs in the Orphica, 8, 11; 11, 11; in ecclesiastical writings of Satan; in rabbinical writings כּוזְמוקְרָטור is used both of human rulers and of the angel of death; cf. Buxtorf, Lex. talm. et rabb., p. 2006 (p. 996, Fischer edition).)
