Logos. Greek term for "Word" or "Reason," used in the prologue to John's Gospel: "In the beginning was the Word." The Logos is thus a term for the eternal Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, understood as the agent of divine creation and the one who "illumines," or enlightens, human beings. Many early church fathers used this concept to justify a positive attitude toward Greek philosophy on the grounds that those who lacked the biblical revelation could still attain some truth because of the operation of Christ as the Logos in them.
