Decisio Saxonica.

Decision rendered 1624 by theologians including Höe* von Höenegg in a dispute bet. the theologians of Tuübingen and Giessen. The former held that in Christ's State of Humiliation the God-Man retained both the possession and the use of all His divine attributes, though He applied them only in secret; the latter held that the Lord had the possession and the functions of His divine attributes, but did not use them according to His human nature. The decision declared that in working miracles the God-Man temporarily stepped out of His kenosis.*
