Trivia Games: Origin
You might recognize the word Trivia from the game Trivial Pursuit. Sometimes the word ‘trivial’ has a negative connotation, meaning ‘unimportant’, or ‘commonplace’. The word derives from the Latin for ‘three roads’. The Romans used to publish news notifications at crossroads so that people travelling the long roads of the Roman Empire could remain more or less informed about matters of general interest. In this sense, ‘trivial’ became linked to commonly accessible knowledge that you came by, quite literally, ‘from the streets’.
In medieval times, the ‘trivium’ referred to the three basic subjects of university education: grammar, logic, and rhetoric. This ‘trivium’ formed the lower division of the seven liberal arts, subjects considered more basic and less challenging than the four subjects of the higher division: arithmetic, astronomy, geometry, and music. From here, the word trivia gradually shifted toward its modern usage, meaning ‘general knowledge’, or little bits of information that might be interesting but overall insignificant.
