There are 4 loves, so the ancient Greeks tell us. They are:
1. Phileo - brotherly love
2. Eros - erotic love
3. Storg - familial love
4. Agape - selfless, sacrificial love for others
Agape is from the Greek and is 3 syllables (a-ga-pe). It is not pronounced the same way you pronounce a
2-syllable word that is spelled the same, but means "wide open" as in "The window was agape."
Agape, as in "love", is pronounced: North American dictionaries recommend uh-GAH-pay while the Oxford
English dictionary recommends AG-a-pea.
