Social Sciences - Religion / Bible commentary (Old Testament)
English term or phrase: theophany
A physical manifestation of a deity. Context:

In Judges 6:11, an "angel of the Lord" appears to Gideon; later, this same entity is addressed as "Lord," and acts with the authoritity of God himself. Apparently this "angel" was a theophany (a manifestation of God).

I'm sure I've heard "teofania" or "teofanía," but I can't find it in DRAE. Need to know in less than an hour! Thanks in advance.
