Etymology 1[edit]

In use by the 6th century. Presumably from the phrase ite missa est, where missa is Late Latin, Vulgar Latin, for missio.

An older derivation (16th century, attributed to Luther) adduced Hebrew מַצָּה (matsá, unleavened bread; oblation) (compare English matzo), but this is no longer considered a tenable etymology.[1]

missa f (genitive missae); first declension
