Etymology of archilogy

Archilogie is an old French word from the XV century, composed by the Greek words archein (pouvoir/power, you may think of mon-archy) and logos (discours/discourse). 

It can be noticed in a work titled "Archilogie Sophie" from Jacques Legrand, a clerk living in the XV century. "Archilogie Sophie" could be translated as "Sagesse du Discours Suprême" (Wisdom of Highest Discourse)

We prefer to translate archilogy by "discours du pouvoir" (discourse on power), that is governance

To invoke governance, cratology (Fr: cratologie) could have been used as well (for cratos, you may think of "démo-cratie", Ang: democracy) but cratology might have summoned French philosopher Michel Foucault's work, a little bit far from information technology governance (IT governance), the first discipline addressed by The Archilogy Institute.
