Crossword Genius

Old theologian, peculiar (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

odd

Here is my best explanation:

'peculiar' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'old theologian' is the subsidiary indication.

'old' becomes 'o'.

'theologian' becomes 'dd'.

'o'+'dd'='odd'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for odd that I've seen before include "Bizarre - occasional", "It's certainly not even", "Number not divisible by two", "Rum", "unlike 1984", "Abnormal", "Queer", "Freakish", "Not even - curious" and "Peculiar or unpaired".)
