Headword: Πνευματικὸν σῶμα
Adler number: pi,1822
Translated headword: spiritual body
Vetting Status: high
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.
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.
