Towards a spousal metaphysics of the eucharist: persons, powers and Mary

Forthcoming in a special issue of Münchener Theologische Zeitschrift, (number 3) 2023.

This paper explores the prospects of an interpersonal metaphysics of persons, powers and contingency for conceiving of the real presence. A generic sketch of such a metaphysical framework is presented whereby persons and their decisions are the irreducible source of contingency in reality, akin to divine creative freedom. An infinity mirror whereby two persons reciprocally and totally value each other opens up the possibility of new or extended life. This model is then used to make a metaphysical sketch of the Incarnation, and based upon that, the last supper and Calvary.
