Headword: Πνευματικὸν σῶμα
Adler number: pi,1822
Translated headword: spiritual body
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
They say that after the soul's departure out of the body, to this [sc. the soul] was fastened a body refined, more airy and more luminous; [one] which will in all respects means have perception of pain.[1] And this nonsense [is] Greek. But they say that thumos and desire[2] are inseparable from this body.
"In the Topics Aristotle says that every spirit is corruptible."[3]
Greek Original:
Πνευματικὸν σῶμα: φασὶ μετὰ τὴν ἔξοδον τῆς ψυχῆς ἐκ τοῦ σώματος ἐξῆφθαι ταύτης σῶμα λεπτομερές, ἀερωδέστερον καὶ αὐγοειδέστερον: ὃ πάντως αἰσθήσεται ἀλγηδόνος. καὶ αὕτη ἡ φλυαρία Ἑλληνική. τούτου δὲ τοῦ σώματος ἀχώριστον εἶναι λέγουσι θυμὸν καὶ ἐπιθυμίαν. ὅτι ἐν τοῖς Τόποις Ἀριστοτέλης πᾶν πνεῦμα φθαρτὸν εἶναι λέγει.
Notes:
The first and principal part of this entry comes from (unattributable) patristic commentary on the "spiritual body" concept in 1 Corinthians 15.44.
[1] As Adler notes, Kuster thought that a 'not' should be supplied here.
[2] In Plato's model of the soul as chariot these two parts represent the emotions of physical response (such as anger; Latin irae) and of aspiring desire (such as spiritual desire; Latin amores) respectively. They need to be controlled by "reason" or "mind". The entry reflects knowledge of philosophical issues in classical antiquity, but from an antagonistic perspective.
[3] So Alexander of Aphrodisias, Commentaries on Aristotle's Topics 144.16-17 Wallies. But Aristotle himself (as Adler notes) does not make such a claim in so many words in anything extant, whether in Topics or elsewhere.
