A word from Leo the Great

The body that lay lifeless in the tomb is ours.
The body that rose again on the third day is ours.
The body that ascended above all the heights of heaven to the right hand of the Father’s glory is ours.
(from Sermo 15, De passione Domini)

    Of the Brethren of the Free Spirit:

    The divine essence is my essence and my essence is the divine essence…From eternity man was God in God…From eternity the soul of man was in God and is God.

    One of the ringleaders `dared to affirm that, in so far as he was, he could neither by consumed by fire nor tormented by torture, for he said that, in so far as he was, he was God.’

    They say they are God by nature, without any distinction…They believe that all divine perfections are in them, that they are eternal and are in eternity.
