Headword: *(uposmu/xousa
Adler number: upsilon,577
Translated headword: causing to smoulder away, consuming slowly
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning she who/that which is] kindling inside, burning below, distressing, subduing.
Greek Original:
*(uposmu/xousa: e)ndiereqi/zousa, u(pokai/ousa, qli/bousa, kataponou=sa.
The headword is the present active participle, feminine nominative singular, of the verb u(posmu/xw. Identically glossed in Photius (upsilon243 Theodoriidis) and other lexica, including the Etymologicum Magnum, where it is identified as a rhetorical word; cf. Etymologicum Gudianum s.v. u(posmi/xousa.
Examples of the word in this precise form are almost entirely confined to lexicography; perhaps, therefore, generated by one of the several instances, in the corresponding accusative case, in Christian writers (e.g. three in Gregory of Nyssa, two in John of Damascus; and see also the poet George of Pisidia, On the Persian Expedition 2.193).
Keywords: Christianity; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; imagery; poetry; religion; rhetoric
