A former theory of combustion in which all flammable objects were supposed to contain a substance called phlogiston, which was released when the object burned. The existence of this hypothetical substance was proposed in by Johann Becher, who called it `combustible earth' (terra pinguis: literally ‘fat earth’).

For example, according to Becher, the conversion of wood to ashes by. The word "phlogiston" is an Ancient Greek term for "burning up", which in turn derives from the Greek "phlox", which means flame.
