Theologians in Conversation; Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa
From Simon Barnett on June 3rd, 2016
John Milbank and Simon Oliver discuss the significance of the work of Blessed Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) for the way we do theology today. Nicholas, in challenging the role of the Principle of Non-Contradiction can help us to have a fresh appreciation of what we mean by ‘truth’ in theology and to make a more realistic assessment of what we can say about God. We must learn to live with learned ignorance.
