Summary of the Module


God made the world to reflect His perfections, which are infinite. He could not have reflected Himself in just one being, however perfect, since every creature is limited. So, he created manifold creatures. His creatures are not only many, but also exceedingly varied, because, if they were identical, they could only represent a single perfection of God, as St. Thomas Aquinas teaches us (Summa Theologica I – q. 47. a. 1).


The Catechism of the Catholic Church (n. 319) tells us that “God created the world to show forth and communicate His glory. That His creatures should share in His truth, goodness, and beauty.”


To understand Old Testament History (the account of the main events that occurred with mankind, from its creation to the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ, based on Scripture), we will first consider the Work of Creation.
