@Atitarev Here there do appear to be short forms just looking in Google Books for телесны, but this doesn't appear to be a comparable adjective (except in the "pale pink" meaning). Benwing2 (talk) 00:26, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

You're right but some authors think that it also means - physical, bodily, tangible, material as in "Некоторые вещи телесны, а некоторые — бестелесны, — писал Гай. Телесны те вещи, которые можно осязать, как земля, человек, одежда, золото, серебро и многое другое. Бестелесны же те, ....". Contrasting with "бестелесный" - "immaterial". Many Google books hits for телесны reference angels, discussing whether they are corporeal or incorporeal. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 00:51, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
