- sanctity:  Latin sanctus ‘holy’ (source of English saint) originated as the past participle of sancīre ‘consecrate’, a verb derived from the same base that produced sacer ‘sacred’ (source of English sacred, sacrifice, etc). Amongst its derivatives to have reached English are sanctify , sanctimonious , sanctity, sanctuary , and sanctum . And its stem sanctformed the basis of the Latin noun sanctiō ‘ordaining of something as sacred or inviolable’, hence more broadly a ‘decree, sanction’, from which English gets sanction .
