Greek, from diaspeirein ‘disperse’, from dia ‘across’ + speirein ‘scatter’. The term originated in the Septuagint (Deuteronomy 28:25) in the phrase esē diaspora en pasais basileias tēs gēs ‘thou shalt be a dispersion in all kingdoms of the earth’.
The term diaspora comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “to scatter about.” And that’s exactly what the people of a diaspora do — they scatter from their homeland to places across the globe, spreading their culture as they go. The Bible refers to the Diaspora of Jews exiled from Israel by the Babylonians.

“Before the first snow, I collect fading flowers and petals, leaves, and bark, and make my own potpourri. Once everything is dried, I arrange it in a large glass bowl. I go on to add a few drops of tea tree and cinnamon essential oils. The rich autumn scent carries me through the ice, snow, and below-zero temperatures.”Kate Angell, The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice
