    Interesting, although I’m not at all sure “faithful” is the best term with respect to the Trinity developments into the Greek and Latin milieu – maybe we could claim that it is in line with that.

    I’d love to hear any recommendations for reading on the subject of anthropomorphic usage. I recently stumbled over the fascinating Psalm 11:5 that asserts that God has a soul (that hates the wicked) and that the people of Israel also have a heart and a soul (see Psalm 33:20-21).

    There is also a question raised here for me of translation fidelity (culturally and textually, note the LXX high reluctance to translate Yahweh as being a rock for instance). Note also how a lack of polytheistic practice could be considered as *atheism*, at least in the fourth century (and I am sure before).

    Thanks for the stimulating post.
