Topic: Hyperdulia


In the News (Tue 23 Jul 19)

  
  Veneration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Church theologians have long adopted the terms latria for the sacrificial worship due to God alone, and dulia for the veneration given to saints and icons.
Catholic theology also includes the term hyperdulia for the type of veneration specifically paid to Mary, mother of Jesus, in Catholic tradition.
This distinction is spelled out in the dogmatic conclusions of the Seventh Ecumenical Council (787), which also decreed that iconoclasm (forbidding icons and their veneration) is a heresy that amounts to a denial of the incarnation of Jesus.

 Latria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Roman Catholics offer other degrees of worship to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to the Saints; these non-sacrificial types of worship are called Hyperdulia and Dulia, respectively.
Protestants and others fault Catholic, Anglican, and Orthodox Christians for revering the Blessed Virgin Mary or the saints, declaring their distinction among latria, hyperdulia, and dulia to be hair-splitting, and furthermore reject Augustine, Jerome, Thomas Aquinas, and others as authorities.
Protestantism considers the Catholic conception of the central religious service to be an error, arguing that the sacrifice of the Cross was unique (which Catholics also believe), and need not and should not be repeated, Heb 6:6, 9:25-28.

 Veneration of Mary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Veneration, or dulia, is the honor given to another person, who deserves such honor for his or her excellence in one area or another.
Hyperdulia, which is a level of veneration given to one whose excellence exceeds that of all others, is given to Mary.
If dulia or hyperdulia is given, if Catholics are aware that Mary and the Saints are not God, then chances are, latria is not given.

 IGLESIA NI CRISTO
The lesser form of veneration given to the angels and saints that Catholicism recognizes has the theological name of dulia (from the Greek term douleia, which means the respect shown to a master by his servant).
The Blessed Virgin is said to be honored with hyperdulia, i.e., a higher form of what is essentially the same veneration paid to other creatures among the saints but in essence unlike the adoration given only to God." (p.
Whatever terminologies Catholic authorities may use to distinguish their worship of Mary from that of God, the fact remains that the Catholic Church worships her and to deny it is a lie.

In Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, veneration, or veneration of saints, is a special act of honoring a dead person who has been identified as singular in the traditions of the religion, and through them honoring God who made them and in whose image they are made.
Catholic theology also includes the term hyperdulia for the type of veneration specifically paid to Mary, Mother of God in Catholic Tradition.
This distinction is spelled out in the dogmatic conclusions of the Seventh Ecumenical Council (A.D. 787), which also decreed that iconoclasm (forbidding icons and their veneration) is a heresy that amounts to a denial of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ.

 THE MOTHER OF THE SAVIOR
It is commonly taught in the Church that the Blessed Virgin is entitled to a cult of hyperdulia, or supreme dulia, because of her eminent dignity as Mother of God.
The cult of hyperdulia is due to Mary formally because she is Mother of God since the dignity of her divine motherhood belongs by its term to the hypostatic order and is therefore very much higher than that which follows upon her degree of grace and glory.
By rendering Mary the cult of hyperdulia we move her to look down on us with still greater love, and for our part are drawn to imitate her virtues.

 SUMMA THEOLOGICA: Does dulia contain several species?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Now hyperdulia is apparently a mean between latria and dulia: for it is shown towards creatures having a special affinity to God, for instance to the Blessed Virgin as being the mother of God.
Therefore it seems that there are different species of dulia, one being simply dulia, the other hyperdulia.
Hyperdulia is the highest species of dulia taken in a wide sense, since the greatest reverence is that which is due to a man by reason of his having an affinity to God.

 Catholic Answers Forums - Let's face it - we DO worship Mary
As the Blessed Virgin has a separate and absolutely supereminent rank among the saints, the worship paid to her is called hyperdulia (for the meaning and history of these terms see Suicer, Thesaurus ecclesiasticus, 1728).
One problem is that while Catholics make several distinctions in the degree of reverence paid to God, Mary, and the saints, Protestants don't, and as a result, the Protestant idea of "worship" can seem somewhat flattened out and in fact reduced in intensity as applied to God.
Because of this flattened out concept of worship, of course it appears that we worship Mary, because the degree of honor we give to her is much the same degree of honor that they give to God himself.

 Mary, An Object of Worship in Roman Catholicism
While the formula of latria, dulia, hyperdulia does permit the Roman Catholic Church to officially deny worshiping Mary, it's actual practice shows otherwise.
God is to be the object of our honor and reverence and we must be careful not to give honor due to Him and His Son to anyone else.
Hyperdulia, as well as the formula of which it is a part, is a theological attempt to justify a system of belief that promotes the worship of Mary.

This corresponds to the worship of hyperdulia that the Church reserves for her.
The worship of dulia, or veneration, the Church assigns to the saints.
But to Our Lady she has a worship that is neither the simple worship of dulia nor the supreme worship of latria, but rather the worship of hyperdulia, which is a higher veneration unparallel to any other.

In Catholic theology there is a clear distinction drawn between the worship of latria (adoration, which may be offered only to God), and veneration and praise, or dulia.
Catholicism has traditionally accorded to the Virgin Mary the veneration of hyperdulia which rests in part upon the angelic salutation, "Hail, full of grace" (Lk 1:28), a phrase with momentous theological impact.
This distinction between latria, hyperdulia, and dulia, is key to understanding Catholic Tradition (the Orthodox do not distinguish hyperdulia from dulia).

Objection 3: Further, just as in the rational creature we find the image of God, for which reason it is honored, so too in the irrational creature we find the trace of God.
Reply to Objection 2: Hyperdulia is the highest species of dulia taken in a wide sense, since the greatest reverence is that which is due to a man by reason of his having an affinity to God.

Thirdly, and most disturbing, is the last form of worship called “hyperdulia”.
When a Catholic is bowing before a statue of Mary, singing to her, praying to her, crowning her with flowers, lighting candles at her feet, and saying the rosary, their heart is totally given over to the worshipping and praising of Mary.
Should a heathen walk into a Roman Catholic Church during one of their rituals honoring Mary, they would assume that Mary was a goddess, for the people bow and pray before her as if she were God!

 CRI's Attack on Mary: Part VI (This Rock: January 1993)
Catholic and Orthodox theologians make a sharp distinction between latria (adoration), the supreme worship rightly given to God alone; dulia (veneration and invocation), given to the saints in heaven and to the angels; and hyperdulia (special veneration and invocation), offered to Mary, the Mother of God and most exalted of God's creatures.
But CRI objects: "While in theory these categories are intended to prevent idolatrous worship of created beings, in practice they have little effect on the religious feelings of the masses.
We pray to our brothers and sisters, the saints, and to the angels, with our minds aware that they are our models, patrons, and intercessors, who offer our prayers to God before the throne of the Lamb (Rev. 4:10, 5:6-14), and this awareness is dulia.

 "Mariolatry"???   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Because God has exalted the Virgin Mary above all other saints, she should receive the highest form of dulia, often called hyperdulia.
 But hyperdulia is still inferior to latria, the supreme honor and adoration which we owe our Creator, so it does not amount to Mariolatry.
Although our Creator does not give the glory which belongs to Him alone to any creature, including Mary, He does bestow "grace and glory" upon the upright (Ps 84:11).

 I'm Glad You Asked - Mary
The Catholic Church even has special words for all this: latria is the worship offered and due to God alone, and dulia is the veneration given to the saints, including Mary [although hyperdulia (more than dulia, but far less than latria) is the term applied to the honor given to Mary].
The words "latria," "dulia" and "hyperdulia" can be confusing to the layperson however, even though they come from the New Testament Greek, because we don't commonly use them (and they can appear to be nothing but smoke-and-mirrors to the non-Catholic who has never heard of them before).
The first question puts this whole area of discussion in perspective.
