Lord is the one who has dominion over something or someone. In this sense, applying the terms "Lord of Hosts," "lord of the realm", "lord of the house." Historically, the title of Lord indicated the superiority over the slaves was the master, or with respect to the subjects that dominated the exchange for protection. It was also used to target characters of nobility and royalty .

In the Middle Ages , was the title that domininaba in a manor (feudal lord) over his subjects. In Spain, where the term "feud" was applied less, applied in the same way the Lordship (Lord of vassals, sir jurisdictional territorial lord, lord of the manor, lord of fork and knife ...). Among the titles of sovereignty of the kings of Spain are those of "Lord of Vizcaya and Molina." Per protocol, you must treat those who have this title of Illustrious Lord ... or Excellence.

In Judaism , the name of God, which should not be pronounced out of respect, is replaced by the word readings Hebrew Adonai, meaning 'lord', and is used to refer to an important person with ability to exercise control over something or someone. Were following the tradition of cultures coming, they saw their gods the lords of the country. This idea was supported by the Jewish belief that the world was created by a creator god (Lord), who had delivered Israel from the dominion of the Egyptians ("lord of the people of Israel" or Sebaoth : 'Lord of hosts ').

Later, when translating the Bible to Greek ( the Septuagint Bible ) , Gd was replaced by Κύριος (kiri) with the same meaning ('lord'). During the Hellenistic era , the idea of regarding God as Lord, came to speak the language, culture both in Egyptian and in Greek .

With the advent of Christianity , the word "Lord" is also used to refer to God the Father as Christ , a tradition that is already reflected in the epistles of Paul of Tarsus (between 51 and 67 ).
