    - From Greek; pan = all, and theon = gods. Literally, all the gods
    - All the gods recognized by a particular religion
    - The three members of the Trinity

    But not a word in "daily" use amongst most people.

    'pantheon' isn't commonly used with this meaning in English, and when (if) it is, it's used by Muslims to indicate that Christians have three gods. In Christian theology, there is one god; and the Trinity doesn't form a pantheon.
