High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In Medieval Europe, Termagant was the name given to a god that the Europeans believed Muslims worshipped. European literature from the Middle Ages often referred to Muslims as pagans, with sobriquets such as the paynim foe. These depictions naively represent Muslims worshipping Muhammad (Mahomet, Mahound) as a god and depict them worshipping various deities in the form of idols (cult images), ranging from Apollo to Lucifer, but their chief deity was typically named Termagant. The origin of the name Termagant is unknown, and does not seem to derive from any actual aspect of Muslim belief or practice, however wildly distorted. W. W. Skeat in the 19th century, speculated that the name was originally "Trivagante", meaning 'thrice wandering', a reference to the moon, because of the Islamic use of crescent moon imagery. An Old English origin has also been suggested, from tiw mihtig r ("very mighty"), referring to the Germanic god Tiw.
