Sorry, no etymologies found.
I have been at some pains to avoid the use of this special language of the mystics; but now perhaps we may remind ourselves that, by the declaration of all who have achieved it, the mature spiritual life is such a condition of completed harmony -- such a theopathetic state.
For them, when they have achieved at last the true theopathetic state, all aspects of the universe possess equal authority as sacramental declarations of the Presence of God; and their fearless employment of homely and physical symbols -- often startling and even revolting to the unaccustomed taste -- is in direct proportion to the exaltation of their spiritual life.
