I'm having trouble identifying a spoken word from a video. The word sounds like "sarathically", but no such work exists.

In the youtube video Jonathon Miller as Bertrand Russell, Russell says of Moore,

"No", he replied, and smiled sarathically, as was his wont.

The sentence is uttered starting at about 56 seconds.

Q : What is the word being uttered?


seraphic adj
Characteristic of or resembling a seraph.
a seraphic smile

seraphically adv

seraph n
An angelic being
