Definition of isagogics in English:


plural noun

  • [treated as singular] Introductory study, especially of the literary and external history of the Bible prior to exegesis.

    • ‘Because this book is not an introduction in the usual sense, its classroom use should be complemented by a work like that of R. K. Harrison so that issues of isagogics are addressed.’


Mid 19th century: plural of isagogic, via Latin from Greek eisagōgikos, from eisagōgē introduction, from eis into + agein to lead.
