Hyparxis in the OO Christological Tradition
« on: October 09, 2015, 12:56:56 AM »
I'm wondering how exactly this term is defined in our tradition. How would one translate it literally into English? How do the Chalcedonians use it?
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

I have literally never heard that word before in my life.

You know too many words.

Existence, perhaps.
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

What distinguishes it from hypostasis?

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

To some, existence is a predicate that can be predicated of a subject. So if a hypostasis is a sort of subject then existence can be predicated of it, perhaps essentially as with all other existents.

There are also some who distinguish being from existence, but that is too difficult to get into here.

This is why worshiping tree gods and hearth spirits is so much easier.

Did you find it in the term τρόπος υπάρξεως?

No. I first read of it in Fr. Timothy Thomas' article on St. Severus' Christology on Monachos.
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ
