Henry of Ghent's Summa, Articles 53-55, on the Divine Persons
Full Product Description
Henry also quotes such philosophers as Aristotle, Porphyry, and Averroes, who of course have little to say on the Trinity. Brief introduction to the questions that Henry discusses in each of the three articles: In article fifty-three Henry first of all situates the following questions within his Summa of Ordinary Questions and explains that he will firstly deal with the persons in general in articles fifty-three and fifty-four and then withthe properties or notions of the persons in article fifty-five. Article fifty-three discusses "the manner of the being of persons in God" and article fifty-four is concerned with "the manner of one person's emanating from another."Article fifty-three has ten questions, the first of which is whether one needs to hold that there is a person in God. In his resolution of the question Henry appeals to what he previously established, namely, that we "must attribute to God whatever is without qualification more worthy or better to be than not to be." Appealing to the authority of Richard of Saint Victor, Henry argues that "person" signifies something incommunicable in a rational or intellectual nature and is something of dignity and nobility.
Hence, we must hold that there is a person in God.
