Chapter Summary

Amandus Polanus lived in an atmosphere, where the experience of the unity was still very strong, or was supposed to be very strong. What Scripture says and what logic says, what the confession believes and what reason proves, in the end it is all the same. In the time of Karl Barth the situation has completely changed. The fields of Scriptural exegesis and of natural science have become completely separate and all Polanus formal dichotomies have increasingly been experienced as dual realities in the course of later modernity. The specific point of this chapter is to see what consequences this methodological shift has for speaking of divine simplicity. Polanus never intended to give a pale and abstract idea of the oneness behind the living fullness of God in his proprietates and his opera.
