English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. trustworthy

    That is authentic which is true to the facts; that is genuine which is true to its own claims; as, authentic history; genuine money.

    A 'genuine' work is one written by the author whose name it bears; an 'authentic' work is one which relates truthfully the matters of which it treats. For example, the apocryphal Gospel of St. Thomas is neither 'genuine' nor 'authentic.' It is not 'genuine,' for St. Thomas did not write it; it is not 'authentic,' for its contents are mainly fables and lies.
