Athelstan IS NOT experiencing Stigmata.
- “stigmata: marks resembling the wounds of the crucified body of Christ, said to be supernaturally impressed on the bodies of certain persons, especially nuns, tertiaries, and monastics.” (Source)
- “(in Christian tradition) marks corresponding to those left on Jesus’ body by the Crucifixion, said to have been impressed by divine favor on the bodies of St. Francis of Assisi and others.” (Source)
There was nothing supernatural in the way he received his marks.
He was literally crucified. The marks didn’t just mysteriously show up one day.
