For the American death metal band, see Deicide (band)

Deicide (a 17th century coinage as it were reflecting a medieval Latin *deicidium, from de-us "god" and -cidium "cutting, killing") is the killing of a god.

The term is used of the Crucifixion of Jesus specifically, but may more generally refer to any life-death-rebirth deity who is killed and then resurrected.

In Christianity, the term was notably used in the question guilt associated with a responsibility for the death of Jesus.
