Dignities of God

To get Muslims, Jews and Christians to believe in a common baseline Llull describes the seven dignities of God that all three could agree on: Bonitos-Good, Magnitudo-Greatness, Eternitas-Eternity, Potestas-Power, Sapentia-Wisdom, Voluntas-Will, Virtus-Vitrue or Strength, Veritas-Truth, Gloria-Glory (see Kabbalah). These in turn, become the art of the nine letters: BCDEFGHIK, A being the absolute. Arranged on a wheel to get a combination. On the wheel the four elements ABCD come into play.

Flattr this!
