Metabolism (from μεταβάλλω, to change) is a term coined by the German theologian Ruckert to describe the doctrinal views of the Christian fathers Ignatius, Justin, and Irenaeus on the Lord's Supper. They stand midway between strict transubstantiation and the merely symbolical view, and hold fast to an objective union of the sensible with the supersensible. SEE LORDS SUPPER; SEE ZWINGLE.
