- refuge:  A refuge is etymologically a place one ‘flees’ to in order to get away from danger. The word comes via Old French refuge from Latin refugium, a derivative of refugere. This was a compound verb formed from the prefix re- ‘away’ and fugere ‘flee’ (source of English fugitive  and fugue ). The derivative refugee  is an adaptation of refugié, the past participle of modern French refugier ‘take refuge’.
