On deification – 4

“By way of similitude, however, ‘this name God is communicable, not in its whole signification, but in some part of it by way of similitude so that those are called gods who share in divinity by likeness, according to the text I have said, ‘You are gods (Ps 82:6)” (Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Response to I.13,9).
