Origin of perichoresis

  • From Ancient Greek περιχώρησις (perikhōrēsis, “going round, rotation”), from περιχωρέω (perikhōreō), from περί (peri, “around”) + χωρεω (khōreō, “go forward, travel”), because the relationship between the three members of the Trinity was described by early Christians as an eternal interpenetrating circulation.
