MSIFORTINUS I LE DISCIPLE QUI GORRIGE LE MAITRE 123 Certes, los angeles glose inseree par Msifortinus pourrait, a l. a. rigueur, etre interpretee en un sens appropriate pour Erigene. motor vehicle ce dernier professe que le corps materiel, ajoute (superaddituni) par Dieu a reason du peche, ne sera pas aneanti—Dieu n'aneantit rien de ce qu'il a cree— mais qu'il sera transforme, absorbe pour ainsi dire par le corps veritable et imperissable. 31 Mais dans le contexte current, 1'addition des mots cum sibi superadditis, que 1'auteur n'avait element cru bon d'ecrire, semble indiquer une volonte de corriger ce dernier. De facon generale, Erigene insiste plutot sur le fait qu'a los angeles resurrection universelle los angeles nature humaine sera debarrassee de tout ce qui lui a ete surajoute en prevision du peche, c'est-a-dire le corps materiel, los angeles department des sexes, le besoin de nourriture, de vetement, de sommeil, and so forth. 32 II en sera de nos corps materiels comme des corps qu'empruntent les demons pour apparaitre aux hommes : les uns et les autres, tels de vieux vetements, periront avec ce monde seen, d'ou ils ont ete tires. 33 Cette maniere de voir n'etait pas courante au neuvieme siecle; il est possible que beaucoup l. a. consideraient comme dangereuse. Ceux qu'Erigene appelait les 'simples' (simplices) et qui, de facon systematique, interpretaient a los angeles lettre (carnaliter) les textes sacres tenaient certainement a ce que l. a. resurrection universelle restaure les corps humains dans leur materialite charnelle, y compris los angeles distinction sexuelle. C'est a eux probablement que pensait Msifortinus quand, par touches discretes, il corrigeait 1'auteur du Periphyseon. Une autre correction apportee par Nisifortinus au cours du livre III du Periphyseon (665D^666A), dans l. a. model III, semble aller dans le meme sens. Voici remark se presentent les deux models. Cidessous, los angeles model II a ete reproduite dans l. a. colonne de gauche, l. a. model III dans celle de droite. Les corrections apportees par Erigene (z1) dans los angeles colonne de gauche sont imprimees en stay gras; celle qu'apporta Nisifortinus (z2) dans l. a. colonne de droite est imprimee en italique gras.
