In What Sense God Is Humble According to St Bonaventure (On the 800th Anniversary of Bonaventure’s Birth)
Pospíšil Ctirad Václav
The author tries to interpret the issue of humility in the works of Bonaventure of Bagnoregio (1217–1274) and especially the question of the humility of God. Based on analysing a number of the master’s works the author concludes that humility as self-depreciation cannot have a place in God, but humility of truthfulness, which is the basis of community, is mysteriously present, according to Bonaventure, in the immanent Trinity.
