[1913 Webster] Neither having the accent of Christians, nor the gait of Christian, pagan, nor man. --Shak. [1913 Webster] Syn: Gentile; heathen; idolater. Usage: Pagan, Gentile, Heathen. Gentile was applied to the other nations of the earth as distinguished from the Jews. Pagan was the name given to idolaters in the early Christian church, because the villagers, being most remote from the centers of instruction, remained for a long time unconverted. Heathen has the same origin. Pagan is now more properly applied to rude and uncivilized idolaters, while heathen embraces all who practice idolatry. [1913 Webster]
