Origen

early 18th century (in the sense 'relating to official documents'): from modern Latin diplomaticus and French diplomatique, from Latin diploma (see diploma). sense 1 (late 18th century) is probably due to the publication of the Codex Juris Gentium Diplomaticus (1695), a collection of originals of important public documents, many of which dealt with international affairs.
