Deus fons omnium pulchritudinum: A beleza divina segundo São Tomás de Aquino

Lumen Veritatis 6 (23):43-55 (2013)

"The contemplation of the beauty existing in the universe serves man as a privileged path for reaching the Absolute. Starting from the observation of these created beauty, man is invited to rise by degrees to the Supreme Degree, to Beauty existing in and of itself. This article has as its objective to show the importance of this vertical metaphysical consideration, by which man begins his philosophical reflection on the world that surrounds him, so as to transcend it and to arrive at Beauty in essence, source of every beauty existing in creation.
