Subject: [b-greek] oikonomia as "incarnation"?

>Dear B-Greekers,

Library (Extracts from the Acts of the Seventh Ecumenical Council, Session
I,Labbe and Cossart, Concilia, Tom. VII., col. 53.):
"John, the most reverend bishop and legate of the Eastern high priests

I don't have access to the Greek text, but I wonder whether the translation
"incarnation" for "oikonomia" is usual and I would

Apreciada b-greek Karen:
Generalmente OIKONOMIAN se va a traducir por mayordomía, comisión,
dispensación, administración; traducirla por (incarnation) no es lo más
común pero puede ser considerada todavía como familia genérica de mayordomía
y primogénitura. Subvertir (subverts) podemos pensar que no es un término
de lectura corrida, un sinónimo de más fluidez podría ser trastornar;
estamos entonces ante un trozo de lectura pesada.
