Contents: The vision of God, or the Icon, the Book of the Most Reverend Father, the Lord Nicholas of Cusa --
Preface --
That the perfection of the image is verified of God, the supremely perfect --
That absolute sight embraceth all modes of seeing --
That the attributes of God are not really different --
That the gaze of God is called providence, grace, and life eternal --
That sight is tasting, seeking, pitying, and acting --
Of seeing face to face --
What is the fruit of seeing face to face and how it is to be had --
That the gaze of God is itself the loving, effecting, reading, and possessing of all things in itself --
How the gaze of God is alike universal and particular, and what is the way thereunto --
How God is seen beyond the coincidence of contradictories and how seeing is being --
How in God is seen succession without succession That where the invisible is seen the uncreated is created --
That God is seen to be absolute infinity --
How God enfoldeth all things without otherness --
How actual infinity is unity, wherein the figure is truth --
How that, unless God were infinite, He would not be the end of desire --
How God, unless He were one and three, could not be perfectly seen --
How God, unless He were a trinity, could not be bliss --
How Jesus is the union of God and man --
How Jesus is understood to be the union of the divine nature and the human nature --
That bliss is not possible without Jesus --
How Jesus seeth and how He hath worked --
How that when Jesus died His unio with life persisted --
How Jesus is the word of life --
How Jesus is the consummation.
