What does "brethren" means?
i am reading a story called "the brethren" by John Grisham. i don't know what brethren means.
old word for fellow men or brothers
Weird word by the way Hello
i think it means like... members. like a leader of a group would talk to the other groupies like "Fellow brethren.. blah blah blah"
In general it means brothers but in the context of that book it might mean lawyers or judges.
