bodily pleasures, then perhaps its opposite might be something
like "libertinism" or even "antinomianism"? I believe PMCV already
has "antinomianism" in his current lexicon, but not the others. So,
in addition to defining terms, if there is any interest,
comparison/contrast with other academic terms might be helpful, too.
For instance, PMCV, your lexicon has "syncretism." You often like to
distinguish this term from "eclecticism," which is not on the current
list. Likewise, "docetism" (on the current list) might be compared
Just some ideas.
