My Oxford English Dictionary word of the day email came today with the verb "absterge." It's from French absterger derived from Latin abstergere and means to cleanse, to wipe away, or to purge. I've looked up all kinds of things related to AC, including the meaning of all the Assassins' names, but had never looked up Abstergo. Interesting choice.
