The word historicity has two main meanings. The first refers to any kind of recorded history after prehistory. This could include cave art, such as we find at Lascaux in southwestern France.

The second meaning of the term refers to questioning the historical existence of Christ, or some other divine personage, mythical figure or place.

For example, an opponent of Christianity might say, “the accounts of Jesus that appear outside of the New Testament are riddled with ambiguity, so the historicity of Jesus is hardly confirmed.”
