Headword: *mwri/a dia\ *xristo/n
Adler number: mu,1339
Translated headword: foolishness for Christ's sake
Vetting Status: high
"[What is foolishness because of[1] Christ?] When we restrain our own thoughts, out of mad desire ahead of time; when we make our intellect void and empty of external education—so that, when it must accept the things of Christ, we hand it over at leisure and swept clean, to accept the divine words."
