AoI-like 'in the air'
However AoI does not say Jesus was crucified in the air.
Cordially, Bernard
Well, fairy nuff, but I think my point was clear, (even if the AoI is not so much.)

I had never heard these quotes from Athanasius the Undying before, and at first surprising glance it appeared he supported a mythicist view of 'in the air'. But no, he merely interprets being hung up on the cross as being up 'in the air.'

No smoking gun.
