Understand “Enthused” through Etymology 

The Etymology of “Enthused” 

The word “enthused” derives from the Greek parts “en-” (inside) and a variation of “theo” (god). It literally means one who is infused with, or possessed by, the spirit of God (or of a god). 

Socrates used this to describe poets, saying that their inspiration is divinely inspired. 

Please ignore the error: it should be “describe” in the last line.
