[Inserted text in margin: God (Knowledge of) Aquinas] "Man may have a threefold knowledge of divine things. The First is what he gains by the natural light of reason when he ascends through creatures to God. The second is when divine truth exceeding human understanding decends to us by way of revealation [revelation], not as it were proved to sight but offered for belief. The third is when the human mind is raised to a perfect insight into the things that are revealed." Sumna Contra Gentiles, Book IV. I.
