By this rule, then, the punishers of transgressors are evil, and those of the priests who shut out the profane from the Divine Mysteries. Further also, the most conspicuous fact of all theologythe God-formation of Jesus amongst usis both unutterable by every expression and unknown to every mind, even to the very foremost of the most reverend angels.


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. For the Oneness of the Divine and one Love is incomprehensible to the multitude, wherefore also, as seeming a very hard name to the multitude, it is assigned to the Divine Wisdom, for the purpose of leading back and restoring them to the knowledge of the veritable Love; and for their liberation from the difficulty divinie it.

For, if the Evil is an imperfect good, then by the entire absence of the Good, both the imperfect and the perfect Good will be absent; and then only will be, and be seen, the Evil, when on the one hand, it is an evil to those things to which it was opposed, and, on the other, is expelled from other things on account of their goodness. Nor yet is the lesser good opposed to the greater, for neither is the less heat or cold opposed to the greater. And why should I say anything to thee concerning the things there divinely spoken?

The Evil then is not an actual thing. But, neither is the Evil in bodies. And, in order that we may first distinctly define everything, in order, we call Divine distinction, as we have said, the goodly progressions of the Godhead.

The treatise, then, seeks to celebrate these, the Names of God, which set dkvinis His Providence. So that there is not an evil nature; but this is evil to bominibus, the inability to accomplish the things of one’s proper nature.


Concerning this then, as has been said, the super-essential and hidden Deity, it is not permitted to speak or even to think beyond the things divinely revealed to us in the sacred Oracles. And He is above all, as superessentially super-being before all.

By reason of these mominibus subsisted all the intelligible and intelligent essences and powers and energies. But what do the theologians mean when at one time they call Him Love, and Loving-kindness, and at another, Loved and Esteemed?

For there is no strict likeness, between the caused and the causes. How, in short, can evil do anything by its mixture with the Good?

For it is the light itself, even though it was then without form, which the divine Moses declared to have fixed that first Triad 21 of our days. And in It are both being and well-being; and from It, re and in It, guarded; and to It, terminated.

For one thing is contrary to nature in one, and another in another, and that which is according to nature to one, is to the other, contrary to nature. But we have spoken of these things in our Symbolical Theology.
