But the beautiful dee Beauty are nominibsu to be divided, as regards the Cause which has embraced the whole in one. The self-existent Super-goodness then, as projecting the first gift of self-existent being, is 78 celebrated by the elder and first of the participations; and being itself is from It, and in It; as also the sources of things being, and all the things that be, and the things howsoever sustained by being, and that irresistibly, and comprehensively and uniformly.

Andereggen – – Sapientia divins Nminibus is the power of prayer, and concerning the blessed Hierotheus, and concerning reverence and covenant in the Word of God. He took 23 substance as man, we have received as a mystery, but we do not know in what manner, from virginal bloods, by a different law, beyond nature, He was formed, and how, with dry feet, having a bodily bulk and weight of matter, He marched upon the liquid and unstable substance 17 ; and so, with regard to all the other features of the super-physical physiology of Jesus.

But if the Divine Minds are both above all the rest of beings, and live above the other living beings, and think and know, above sensible perception and reason, and, beyond all the other existing beings, aspire to, and participate in, the Beautiful and Good, they are more around the Good, participating in It more abundantly, and having received larger and greater gifts from It.

So that the fact, that birth is born from destruction, is not a power of evil, but a presence of a lesser good, even as disease is a defect of order, not totalfor, if this should be, not even the disease itself will continue to exist, but the disease remains and is, by having the lowest possible order of essence, and in this continues to exist as a parasite.

But of this the seal is not the cause, for it imparts itself all and the same to each; but the difference of the recipients makes the figures dissimilar, since the 20 archetype is one and complete and the same. And the souls, and all the other beings, according to the same rule, have their being, and their well-being; and are, and are well; by having from the Pre-existing their being 80 and their well-being.

Or to take another example, if any one standing on the ship pushes away the rock by the sea shore, he will do nothing to the stationary and unmoved rock, but he separates himself from it, and in proportion as he pushes that away, he is so far hurled from it. There is nothing out of place then, that, by ascending from obscure images to the Cause of all, we should 79 contemplate, with supermundane eyes, all things in the Cause of all, even those contrary to each other, after a single fashion and unitedly.


For instance, that It is cause and origin and essence and life of all things; and even of those who fall away from It, both recalling and resurrection; and of those who have lapsed to the perversion of the Divine likeness, renewal and reformation; of those who are tossed about in a sort of irreligious unsteadiness, a religious stability; of those who have continued to stand, steadfastness; of those who are being conducted to It, a protecting Conductor; of those being illuminated, illumination; of those being perfected, source of perfection; of those being deified, source of deification; of those being 5 simplified, simplification; of those being unified, unity; of every origin superessentially super-original origin; and of the Hidden, as far as is right, beneficent communication; and, in one word, the life of the living, and essence of things that be; of all life and essence, origin and cause; because Its goodness produces and sustains things that be, in their being.

Pseudo-Dionysius Areopagita. De Divinis Nominibus : Beate Regina Suchla :

For, It is not in a place, so that It should be absent from a particular place, or should pass from one to another. But, if in God, the Good is sustaining divnis, God, when changing from the Good, will be sometimes Being, and sometimes not Being. But, if the Good is above all things being, as indeed it is, and formulates the formless, even nomonibus Itself alone, both the non-essential is a pre-eminence of essence, and the non-living is a superior life, and the mindless a superior nominibua, and whatever is in the Good is of a superlative formation of the formless, and if one may venture to say so, even the nonexistent itself aspires to the Good above all things existing, and struggles somehow to be even itself in the Good,the really Superessentialto the exclusion of all things.

And they are not altogether without part in the good, in so far as they both are, and live and think, and in one nominibua there is a sort of movement of aspiration in them.

What is divunis purpose of the discourse, and what the tradition concerning Divine Names. But we will recall to your remembrance this much, that the purpose of our treatise is not to make known the superessential Essence qua superessential for this is inexpressible, and unknowable, and altogether unrevealed, and surpassing the union itselfbut to celebrate the progression of the supremely Divine Source of Essence, which gives essence to all things being.

Alfred Feder – nominiibus Theologie Und Philosophie 1 3: To a demon, evil is to be contrary to the good-like mominibus a soul, to be contrary to reasonto a body, to be contrary to nature. Now, since we are speaking of these things, come then, and let us praise the Good, as veritably Being, and giving essence to all things that be. And yet, if that man had deigned to treat systematically all the theological treatises, and had gone 29 through the sum of all theology, by detailed expositions, we should not have gone to such a height of folly, or stupidity, as to have attempted alone theological questions, either more lucidly or divinely than he, or to indulge in vain talk by saying superfluously the diivnis things twice over, and in addition to do injustice to one, both teacher and friend, and that we, who have onminibus instructed from his discourses, after Paul the Divine, should filch for our own glorification his most illustrious contemplation and elucidation.

Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x And, to use illustrations suitable to ourselves, pleasures and pains are said to be productive of pleasure and pain, but these themselves feel neither pleasure nor pain. And in Nominibsu are both being and well-being; and from It, beginning; and in It, guarded; and to It, terminated.

The theologians, having knowledge of this, celebrate It, both without Name and from every Name. For even with regard to other living creatures, not mominibus possession of these, but the loss, is both destruction to the creature, and an evil.

Augustin contra Academicos Karin Schlapbach. The Good, nominibud, will be fixed far above both the absolutely existing and the non-existing; but the Evil is neither in things existing, nor in things non-existing, but, being further distant from the Good than 54 the non-existing itself, it is alien and more unsubstantial. Does not frequently the destruction of one become birth of another?

So that the Evil is not in God, and the Evil is not inspired by God. And, in short, the lovable is of the Beautiful and Good, and Love preexisted both in the Beautiful and Good, and on account of the Beautiful and Good, is and takes Being. But if matter, being without these, by itself is without quality and without form, how does matter produce anythingmatter, which, by se, is impassive?

Or, is the nature of the soul then good, but, by its energies, exists sometimes in one condition, and sometimes in another? Request removal from index. But, if it shall be, how will the Evil be in the Good?
