anathema updating equipment database-39

The book is dated to the Maccabean period in the 2d century BC.acording to webster thesaurus Anathema-Curse, imprecation,condemnation,malediction,damnation, 2-villian,foe,outlaw,heretic, bane think ill go with webster on this one, athough im sure you are entirely more versed in word orgin.

this is what it means today, words evolve and at this point in time, i basicly means curse, would explain the proc as well. While I am not Catholic, and I guess you aren't as well...

Wuben's post is bunk...pulled out my old dusty King James bible and looked up Anathema in the concordance and Anathema is not listed. Wuben is posting information that is definitely in the Catholic version of the King James (Dusty as it may be...) There are several books in the Catholic bible that were not canonized (approved by the protestant religious leaders of the time) and determined to be not true by the church and therefore removed by the protestants.

Not to mention that there is no chapter named Judith in the bible either. I did however look up Anathema on Webster' 1. One that is greatly reviled, loathed, or shunned 5. The books of Judith, Mach and a few others mentioned in Wuben's post are part of this "Apocrypha".

A formal ecclesiastical ban, curse, or excommunication. A vehement denunciation; a curse: "the sound of a witch's anathemas in some unknown tongue" 3. So while they are not known to you - they are nevertheless considered to be "The Written Word" of God by the Catholic Church.

Please do some research before you attempt to "debunk" someone else's post.

Kaleeka D'Arrogan of Erolissi Marr You take the meaning Wuben gave, and the meaning that Haarkin take a look at what the weapon does (**** off enemies), one can conclude that a curse or a like thing would **** off (enrage) a mob more then an offering to a god.

It is quite possible and probable that this word can have different meaning in the context that it is used, as well as have taken different meanings within different cultures and time frames.

IE English and the traslation from Hebrew, Greek, Ancient Egyptian, etc (depending on which book your looking at).

That being said, wouldn't it be funny if soe planned this out and put thought into the name of the sword. Found this online: A book of the Old Testament in versions of the Bible based on the Greek Septuagint, Judith is included with the Apocrypha in the Authorized and Revised Standard versions; it does not appear at all in the Hebrew Bible.

A sword that proc's a hate that ticks off the enemy and is a curse unto the enemy, but at the same time is a sacrafice and praise unto the god of Hate Innoruuk who delights in all things hateful. The work of an unknown author, the book is a fictitious account of the deliverance of Israel from a foreign army by Judith, the devout and beautiful heroine who first beguiled and then beheaded the Assyrian commander Holofernes.
