WHAT DOES ANTHROPOPATHISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Anthropopathism

Anthropopathism, from the Greek "Anthropos", meaning "man" and "Pathos", meaning to feel or suffer. This is the assignation of human emotional characteristics to a non-human subject, when these are traits they do not possess. This is a technique prevalent in religious writings, where, for instance, Human emotion is attributed to God, where he would not normally experience emotion in this sense. This technique is particularly notable in the book of Genesis, as an example of the theme of God as a personal deity. Some Bible scholars, however, argue that human emotions ascribed to God are indicative of divine responses within the matrix of human history that are in fact analogous to human emotions though not univocal.
