      Mike, if "encratism" would signify devaluation of or even despising
      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
      to "adoptionism."

      Just some ideas.
