Article

The standard Oxford English Dictionary definition of ‘epiphany’ refers to ‘an appearance or manifestation, especially of a deity’ — and in particular the divine ‘manifestation of Christ to the gentiles in the persons of the Magi’. James Joyce (1882–1941), however, popularized the term to describe not just religious manifestations, but secular, everyday and even banal revelations.
