Soul of the Essence

Would someone be so inclined to assist me in interpreting this? In a way its almost contradictory.

Essence is defined as "the attribute (or set of attributes) that make an object or substance what it fundamentally is."

While Soul is defined as "the ethereal substance — spirit (Hebrew:rooah or nefesh) — particular to a unique living being. Such traditions often consider the soul both immortal and innately aware of its immortal nature, as well as the true basis for sentience in each living being."

But what really throws things for a loop is this definition for Soul... "The Soul is the Essence of self, the part of self that exist after death, and during after life separate from the physical vessel, also the soul exists with the spirit and body in a trinity during life."

'Soul of the essense' doesn't make any sense.

'Soul is of the essense' would mean that the soul is the most important thing.

In the quoted definition, 'the soul is the essence of self' they are not saying either of those. 'self' here means your personality, 'yourself', the things that make you individually you and not just another random human being. They are saying that your soul is what makes you 'you'.
To me, those definitions seem fine, but not your

Couldn't it be "essence of the soul"?
No, it is "Soul of the Essence".
It doesn't make much sense as a stand-alone phrase.

What is the context?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
It is a description of a person, a hero to some degree.
Sounds like a 'made-up' title then, they don't always make that much sense, people just go for something that 'sounds good'.
To some extent, I can see your point of view, but you must give them some credit. This perticular phrase is an integral part, so I believe there was a little more forthought.
