Psychopannychism (ψυχή, soul; πᾶν, all; and , νύξ, night- the sleep of the soul) is the doctrine to which Luther, among divines, and Forney, among philosophers, were inclined, that at death the soul falls asleep, and does not awake till the resurrection of the body. Calvin wrote a treatise against this view in 1534, and there is much against it in Henry Mori's Works. Pagett says, in his Heresiography, written about 1638, that this "heresy" revived in his time through the publication of a work entitled Man's Mortality. SEE SOUL- SLEEP.
