More > of the Church lost their understanding of sound interpretive principles. Theology began to be supplemented, then co-opted and corrupted, by Greek philosophy: namely, Middle Platonism, then Neoplatonism, and later Theurgy.

On the one hand is the visibility in the symbol, the "corporeity" of the gift of God.< Less
