The word heresy comes from haeresis, a Latin transliteration of the Greek word meaning choosing, choice, course of action, or in an extended sense school of thought.  Irenaeus (b. between the years 115 – 125 according to some, or 130 – 142,  d. 202) defined heresy as deviation from the standard of sound doctrine.
