Etymology[edit]

A depiction of Máni, the personified moon, and his sister Sól, the personified sun, from Norse mythology
Norse mythology
(1895) by Lorenz Frølich.

Sunday
Sunday
is named after the Sun

The name "Sunday", the day of the Sun, is derived from Hellenistic astrology, where the seven planets, known in English as Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon, each had an hour of the day assigned to them, and the planet which was regent during the first hour of any day of the week gave its name to that day. During the 1st and 2nd century, the week of seven days was introduced into Rome
Rome
from Egypt, and the Roman names of the planets were given to each successive day. Germanic peoples seem to have adopted the week as a division of time from the Romans, but they changed the Roman names into those of corresponding Teutonic deities. Hence, the dies Solis became Sunday (German, Sonntag). The English noun Sunday
Sunday
derived sometime before 1250 from sunedai, which itself developed from Old English
Old English
(before 700) Sunnandæg (literally meaning "sun's day"), which is cognate to other Germanic languages, including Old Frisian sunnandei, Old Saxon
Old Saxon
sunnundag, Middle Dutch sonnendach (modern Dutch zondag), Old High German
Old High German
sunnun tag (modern German Sonntag), and Old Norse
Old Norse
sunnudagr (Danish and Norwegian søndag, Icelandic sunnudagur and Swedish söndag). The Germanic term is a Germanic interpretation of Latin
Latin
dies solis ("day of the sun"), which is a translation of the Ancient Greek
Ancient Greek
heméra helíou.[3] The p-Celtic Welsh language
Welsh language
also translates the Latin
Latin
"day of the sun" as dydd Sul. In most Indian languages, the word for Sunday
Sunday
is Ravivāra or Adityavāra or its derived forms — vāra meaning day, Aditya and Ravi both being a style (manner of address) for Surya
Surya
i.e. the Sun
Sun
and Suryadeva
Suryadeva
the chief solar deity and one of the Adityas. Ravivāra is first day cited in Jyotisha, which provides logical reason for giving the name of each week day. In the Thai solar calendar
Thai solar calendar
of Thailand, the name ("Waan Arthit") is derived from Aditya, and the associated colour is red. In Russian the word for Sunday
Sunday
is Воскресенье (Voskreseniye) meaning "Resurrection".[4] In other Slavic languages the word means "no work", for example Polish: Niedziela, Ukrainian: Недiля, Belorussian: Нядзеля, Croatian: nedjelja, Serbian and Slovenian: Nedelja, Czech: Neděle, and Bulgarian: Неделя. The Modern Greek
Modern Greek
word for Sunday, Greek: Κυριακή, is derived from Greek: Κύριος (Kyrios, Lord) also, due to its liturgical significance as the day commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, i.e. The Lord's Day. Position in the week[edit] ISO 8601[edit] The international standard ISO 8601 for representation of dates and times, states that Sunday
Sunday
is the seventh and last day of the week.[5] This method of representing dates and times unambiguously was first published in 1988. Culture and languages[edit] Main article: Names of the days of the week
Names of the days of the week
§ Numbered days of the week In the Judaic, some Christian, as well as in some Islamic tradition, Sunday
Sunday
has been considered the first day of the week. A number of languages express this position either by the name for the day or by the naming of the other days. In Hebrew it is called יום ראשון yom rishon, in Arabic الأحد al-ahad, in Persian and related languages یکشنبه yek-shanbe, all meaning "first". In Greek, the names of the days Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday ("Δευτέρα", "Τρίτη", "Τετάρτη" and "Πέμπτη") mean "second", "third", "fourth", and "fifth" respectively. This leaves Sunday
Sunday
in the first position of the week count. The current Greek name for Sunday, Κυριακή (Kyriake), means "Lord's Day" coming from the word Κύριος (Kyrios), which is the Greek word for "Lord". Similarly in Portuguese, where the days from Monday
Monday
to Friday
Friday
are counted as Segunda-feira, Terça-feira, Quarta-feira, Quinta-feira and Sexta-feira, while Sunday
Sunday
itself similar to Greek has the name of "Lord's Day" (Domingo). In Vietnamese, the working days in the week are named as: "Thứ Hai" (second day), "Thứ Ba" (third day), "Thứ Tư" (fourth day), "Thứ Năm" (fifth day), "Thứ Sáu" (sixth day), "Thứ Bảy" (seventh day). Sunday
Sunday
is called "Chủ Nhật", a corrupted form of "Chúa Nhật" meaning "Lord's Day." Some colloquial text in the south of Vietnam
Vietnam
and from the church may still use the old form to mean Sunday. In Italian, Sunday
Sunday
is called "Domenica", which also means "Lord's Day" (from Latin
Latin
"Dies Dominica"). One finds similar cognates in French, where the name is "Dimanche", as well as Romanian ("Duminică") and Spanish and Portuguese ("Domingo"). Slavic languages
Slavic languages
implicitly number Monday
Monday
as day number one, not two. For example, Polish has czwartek (4th) for Thursday
Thursday
and piątek (5th) for Friday. Hungarian péntek (Friday) is a Slavic loanword, so the correlation with "five" is not evident to Hungarians. Hungarians use Vasárnap for Sunday, which means "market day". Bulgarian понеделник and Russian понедельник (Monday) literally mean "after no work", Russian вторник (Tuesday) means "second day", среда (Wednesday) means "middle day", четверг (Thursday) means "fourth day", пятница (Friday) means "fifth day", суббота (Saturday) means "sabbath", and воскресение (Sunday) means "resurrection (of Jesus)" (that is the day of a week which commemorates it). In Old Russian Sunday
Sunday
was also called неделя "free day" or "day with no work", but in the contemporary language this word means "week". In the Maltese language, due to its Siculo-Arabic origin, Sunday
Sunday
is called "Il-Ħadd", a corruption of "wieħed" meaning "one". Monday
Monday
is "It-Tnejn" meaning "two". Similarly Tuesday
Tuesday
is "It-Tlieta" (three), Wednesday
Wednesday
is "L-Erbgħa" (four) and Thursday
Thursday
is "Il-Ħamis" (five). In Armenian, Monday
Monday
is (Yerkoushabti) literally meaning 2nd day of the week, Tuesday
Tuesday
(Yerekshabti) 3rd day, Wednesday
Wednesday
(Chorekshabti) 4th day, Thursday
Thursday
(Hingshabti) 5th day. Saturday
Saturday
is (Shabat) coming from the word Sabbath or Shabbath in Hebrew, and "Kiraki" coming from the word "Krak" meaning "fire" is Sunday, "Krak" describing the sun by fire. Apostle John also refers to the "Lord's Day" (in Greek, Κυριακή ἡμέρα, "kyriake hemera" i.e. the day of the Lord) in Rev. 1:10, which is another possible origin of the Armenian word for Sunday. However, in many European countries calendars almost always show Monday
Monday
as the first day of the week,[6] which follows the ISO 8601 standard. In the Persian calendar, Sunday
Sunday
is the second day of the week. However, it is called "number one" as counting starts from zero; the first day - Saturday
Saturday
- is denoted as 00.

Sunday
Sunday
in Christianity[edit] Pagan correspondence[edit] In Roman culture, Sunday
Sunday
was the day of the Sun
Sun
god. In paganism, the sun was a source of life, giving warmth and illumination to mankind. It was the center of a popular cult among Romans, who would stand at dawn to catch the first rays of sunshine as they prayed.[dubious – discuss] The opportunity to spot in the nature-worship of their heathen neighbors a symbolism valid to their own faith was not lost on the Christians. One of the Church fathers, St. Jerome, would declare: "If pagans call [the Lord's Day] [...] the 'day of the sun,' we willingly agree, for today the light of the world is raised, today is revealed the sun of justice with healing in his rays."[7] A similar consideration may have influenced the choice of the Christmas
Christmas
date on the day of the winter solstice, whose celebration was part of the Roman cult of the sun.[dubious – discuss][8] In the same vein, Christian churches have been built and are still being built (as far as possible) with an orientation so that the congregation faced toward the sunrise in the East. Much later, St. Francis would sing in his famous canticle: "Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures, especially through my lord Brother Sun, who brings the day; and you give light through him. And he is beautiful and radiant in all his splendor! Of you, Most High, he bears the likeness." Christian usage[edit] See also: Sabbath in Christianity The ancient Romans traditionally used the eight-day nundinal cycle, a market week, but in the time of Augustus
Augustus
in the 1st century AD, a seven-day week also came into use. Justin Martyr, in the mid 2nd century, mentions "memoirs of the apostles" as being read on "the day called that of the sun" (Sunday) alongside the "writings of the prophets." [9] On 7 March 321, Constantine I, Rome's first Christian Emperor (see Constantine I and Christianity), decreed that Sunday
Sunday
would be observed as the Roman day of rest:[10]

On the venerable Day of the Sun
Sun
let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain-sowing or vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.[11]

Despite the official adoption of Sunday
Sunday
as a day of rest by Constantine, the seven-day week and the nundial cycle continued to be used side-by-side until at least the Calendar of 354 and probably later.[12] In 363, Canon 29 of the Council of Laodicea prohibited observance of the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday), and encouraged Christians to work on the Saturday
Saturday
and rest on the Lord's Day
Lord's Day
(Sunday).[13] The fact that the canon had to be issued at all is an indication that adoption of Constantine's decree of 321 was still not universal, not even among Christians. It also indicates that Jews were observing the Sabbath on the Saturday. Modern practices[edit] Some Christian denominations, called "Sabbatarians", observe a Saturday
Saturday
Sabbath. The name "Sabbatarian" has also been claimed by Christians, especially Protestants, who believe Sunday
Sunday
must be observed with just the sort of rigorous abstinence from work associated with "Shabbat". Christians in the Seventh-day Adventist, Seventh Day Baptist, and Church of God (Seventh-Day) denominations, as well as many Messianic Jews, have maintained the practice of abstaining from work and gathering for worship on Saturdays (sunset to sunset) as did all of the followers of God in the Bible. For most Christians the custom and obligation of Sunday
Sunday
rest is not as strict. A minority of Christians do not regard the day they attend church as important, so long as they attend. There is considerable variation in the observance of Sabbath rituals and restrictions, but some cessation of normal weekday activities is customary. Many Christians today observe Sunday
Sunday
as a day of church-attendance. In Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
liturgy, Sunday
Sunday
begins on Saturday
Saturday
evening. The evening Mass on Saturday
Saturday
is liturgically a full Sunday
Sunday
Mass and fulfills the obligation of Sunday
Sunday
Mass attendance, and Vespers (evening prayer) on Saturday
Saturday
night is liturgically "first Vespers" of the Sunday. The same evening anticipation applies to other major solemnities and feasts, and is an echo of the Jewish practice of starting the new day at sunset. Those who work in the medical field, in law enforcement, and soldiers in a war zone are dispensed from the usual obligation to attend Church on Sunday. They are encouraged to combine their work with attending religious services if possible. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Sunday
Sunday
begins at the Little Entrance of Vespers
Vespers
(or All-Night Vigil) on Saturday
Saturday
evening and runs until "Vouchsafe, O Lord" (after the "prokeimenon") of Vespers
Vespers
on Sunday night. During this time, the dismissal at all services begin with the words, "May Christ our True God, who rose from the dead ...." Anyone who wishes to receive Holy Communion
Holy Communion
at Divine Liturgy
Divine Liturgy
on Sunday morning is required to attend Vespers
Vespers
the night before (see Eucharistic discipline). Among Orthodox Christians, Sunday
Sunday
is considered to be a "Little Pascha" (Easter), and because of the Paschal joy, the making of prostrations is forbidden, except in certain circumstances. Leisure activities and idleness, being secular and offensive to Christ as it is time-wasting, is prohibited[dubious – discuss]. Some languages lack separate words for "Saturday" and "Sabbath" (e. g. Italian, Portuguese). Outside the English-speaking world, Sabbath as a word, if it is used, refers to the Saturday
Saturday
(or the specific Jewish practices on it); Sunday
Sunday
is called the Lord's Day
Lord's Day
e. g. in Romance languages and Modern Greek. On the other hand, English-speaking Christians often refer to the Sunday
Sunday
as the Sabbath (other than Seventh-day Sabbatarians); a practice which, probably due to the international connections and the Latin
Latin
tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, is more widespread among (but not limited to) Protestants. Quakers traditionally referred to Sunday
Sunday
as "First Day" eschewing the pagan origin of the English name, while referring to Saturday
Saturday
as the "Seventh day".[14] The Russian word for Sunday
Sunday
is "Voskresenie," meaning "Resurrection day." The Greek word for Sunday
Sunday
is "Kyriake" (the "Lord's Day"). The Czech, Polish, Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Ukrainian and Belarusian words for Sunday
Sunday
("neděle," "niedziela," "nedelja", "nedjelja," "недеља", "неділя" and "нядзеля" respectively) can be translated as "without acts (no work)." Common occurrences on Sunday[edit] In government and business[edit]
