- recondite:  Recondite ‘obscure, abstruse’ means etymologically ‘hidden’. It comes from reconditus, the past participle of Latin recondere ‘hide’. This was a compound verb formed from the prefix re- ‘again’ and condere ‘put away, store’ (ultimate source of English condiment , literally ‘stored’ or ‘preserved’ food).

- 1640s, "removed or hidden from view," from Old French recondit, from Latin reconditus, past participle of recondere "store away, hide, conceal, put back again, put up again, lay up," from re- "away, back" (see re-) + condere "to store, hide, put together," from con- "together" (see con-) + -dere "to put, place," comb. form of dare "to give" (see date (n.1)).
