THE VISION OF GOD
(
 De Visione Dei
)by
NICHOLAS OF CUSA
CHAPTER TITLES1. The perfection of the appearance is predicated truly of the most per-fect God.2. Absolute Sight encompasses all modes [of seeing].3. Things predicated of God do not differ really.4. God's vision is said to be providence, grace, and eternal life.5. [God's] seeing is His tasting, seeking, showing mercy, and working.6. [Our] vision of [God's] Face.7. What the fruit of [our] vision of [God's] Face is, and how this fruitwill be obtained.8. God's vision is loving, causing, reading, and the having within itself of all things.9. [God's vision] is both universal and particular; and what the way toseeing God is.10. God is seen beyond the coincidence of contradicto-ries, and His seeing is His being.11. In God we see succession without succession.12. Where the invisible is seen the uncreated is created.13. God is seen to be Absolute Infinity.14. God enfolds, without otherness, all things.15. Actual Infinity is a oneness in which image is Truth.16. Unless God were infinite, He would not be the Endof desire.17. God can be seen perfectly only as triune.18. Unless God were trine, there would not be happiness.19. Jesus is the union of God and man.20. How Jesus is understood to be the uniting of thedivine nature and the human nature.21. Without Jesus happiness is not possible.22. How Jesus sees and how He worked.23. How Jesus died even though His union with liferemained.24. Jesus is the Word of Life.25. Jesus is the Consummation.
