Etymology : English instauration comes directly from the Latin noun instaurātiōn- (stem of instaurātiō) “renewal, repetition,” a derivative of instaurāre “to renew, repeat,” originally “to set up stakes or poles (in building),” from the obsolete noun staurus. The Latin root of the verb and noun is stau-, an uncommon extension of the Proto-Indo-European root stā-. The same rare variant also appears in Greek staurόs “upright stake, pile (for a foundation).” Staurόs is also the word used in the gospels, e.g., Matthew 27:40, for the cross on which Jesus was crucified. Instauration entered English in the early 17th century.
