Etymology: hierarchia "ranked division of angels" (in the system of Dionysius the Areopagite), from Gk. hierarchia "rule of a high priest," from hierarches "high priest, leader of sacred rites," from ta hiera "the sacred rites" (neut. pl. of hieros "sacred") + archein "to lead, rule.
i-e-rarchies: : Breaking the word to identify its new meaning. In the particular period disciplines are set from the networks and the i-culture so eventually hierarchies are redefined through an established system in the web that creates them through totally different procedures than in the past.
