Chapter Summary

In most-sacred theology, God is treated not only as the principle upon which it is constructed and the source of one's knowledge of it but also as the subject and the foremost, primary locus of theology from which all the others flow forth, by which they are held together, and to which they should be directed. Hence theology derives its very name from this starting-point. God is the Creator, the Preserver, and the Ruler of the universe, the Redeemer, Savior and the Glorifier of his elect. This description of God comprises three parts: the revelation of the one Essence by means of various attributes; the enumeration of the divine Persons; and the revelation of his deeds. From and in this divine nature all things are and exist, everything by means of its own way of participation, and the divine Essence is spiritual.

Keywords: Creator; divine Essence; Glorifier; God; Redeemer; Savior; theology
