congregate at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

c.1400, from L. congregatus, pp. of congregare "to herd together," from com- "together" + gregare "to collect into a flock, gather," from grex (gen. gregis) "a flock." Congregation is from c.1340, used by Tyndale to translate Gk. ekklesia in New Testament, and preferred by 16c. Reformers instead of church; hence the word's main modern sense of "local society of believers" (1526), and Congregational, the Protestant sect, from 1639. ///
