Featured Term (selected at random:
An elaborate public praise given of some person or event, a formal eulogy. The most famous Christian panegyrics were those of the Fathers of the Church, e.g., St. John Chrysostom preaching on Sts. Lucian and Romanus in A.D. 387. (Etym. Greek pan_gyrikos, for a public festival.)

I’d have thought it was somehow related to “Pangea”.....the earth’s primal continental land mass.
