In neither of these examples, however, is Gregory's view of the economy of redemption as precisely articulated or as rhetorically balanced as it is in his Eastertide homily, which relies for much of its effect on the contrast between Eve and Mary Magdalene through the opposing images of the potus mortis and poculum vitae.
Illa poculum a serpente propinatum libenter accepit, et uiro tradidit, ex quo simul mererentur occidi: haec gratia caelesti desuper infusa uitam protulit, per quam caro mortua posset resuscitari.(35)
The only modifications Gregory has introduced to the formula are to substitute Mary Magdalene for the Virgin, apply the cup metaphor to both women, and develop Quodvultdeus's fairly perfunctory image of the poculum into the more suggestive potus mortis and poculum vitae.
Poculum strongly convex, cup-shaped and reaching roughly half way along tergum IX.
5); somewhat larger poculum; less prominent and acute rudimentary vomer (Figs 10-11) as well as by the relatively shorter and more robust cerci, which have the interobasal spine longer and narrower than in picta (Fig.
Poculum moderately convex and with a conical basal projection, posterior margin entire.
This genus is apparently very close to Hypocyrtus Redtenbacher, 1908, the second Central American representative of the tribe Hesperophasmatini, but differs by the following characteristic features: antennae of both sexes only about 1/2 as long as body; head of females convex and with a pair of auriform or foliaceous cephalic lobes; poculum of males without a posteromedian notch, and females with a beak-like ovipositor formed by an elongated subgenital and supra-anal plate.
Poculum strongly convex and cup-like, posterior margin gently excavated and slightly projecting over posterior margin of tergum IX (Fig.
Poculum with slender, spatulate appendix and extending greatly over abdomen apex; cerci small, no longer than anal segment, with paired thorn pads 2 --Poculum not extending beyond apex of abdomen; cerci strongly enlarged and broadened; longer than anal segment, without paired thorn pads 4 2.
Poculum of male rather bulgy, roundly convex and tub-like with the posterior margin bidentate; slightly projecting over posterior margin of tergite IX (Fig.
Common features are the unarmed legs and ovate, unarmed head of both sexes, smooth abdomen and lanceolate, apically pointed subgenital plate of females and the bidentate posterior margin of the poculum of males.
