From the January 1921 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The educated man of today, although rejecting the accusation that he is even now victimized by superstitious beliefs, probably maintains, if he be a student of the history of religion, that superstition has been an aid to civilization. The word concurs in meaning with the Greek word, δєισιδαιμovία, used by Paul, which is derived from two words, one meaning timid, and the other, malevolent spirit.
