Could be Galatians 6,17 understood as Paul’s stigmas?
After this, let no one trouble me; I carry branded on my body the marks of Jesus.<< (New Jerusalem Bible)
Or should it be understood figurative?
I know that he had “thorn in his flesh”, but if we take this thorn as figurative symbol, and the Gal 6,17 as exact term… then he was the first stigmatist (and St. Francis of Assisi was the second).
Is there any other source (other than epistles in the Scripture) that can elucidate this?
