Impanation is a name employed to denote the union of the body of Christ with the bread of the Eucharist. This view, patterned on the analogy of Christ's hypostatic union: God made flesh in the Person of Jesus Christ, asserts that "God is made bread" in the Eucharist. Christ's divine attributes are shared by the eucharistic bread via his body. It is considered to be similar to consubstantiation. It is viewed as a heresy by the Roman Catholic Church and rejected by the Lutheran Church.
impanation in Italian: Impanazione
impanation in Polish: Impanacja
