Hallo peterstrnad,

ich bin nicht ganz sicher aber vielleicht 'numinos' (göttlich).

z.B. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numen und http://www.duden.de/rechtschreibung/numinos

mein dicker Webster sagt:
1. of, relating to, or characteristic of a numen (supernatural)
[wobei numen wiederum definiert wird als "a spirit believed by animists to inhabit a natural object or phenomenon"]
2. dedicated to or hallowed by assiciation with a deity (sacred)
3. having talismanic properties (magical)
