Earlier scholars had discussed the question of "learned ignorance". Augustine of Hippo , for instance, stated " Est ergo in nobis quaedam, ut dicam, docta ignorantia, sed docta spiritu dei, qui adiuvat infirmitatem nostram " [1] - "There is therefore in us a certain learned ignorance, so to speak — an ignorance which we learn from that Spirit of God who helps our infirmities"; here he explains the working of the Holy Spirit among men and women, despite their human insufficiency, as a learned ignorance. For Cusanus, docta ignorantia means that since mankind can not grasp the infinity of a deity through rational knowledge, the limits of science need to be passed by means of speculation. This mode of inquiry blurs the borders between science and ignorantia.

Cusa's mystical-religious philosophy was set forth in his essays De Docta Ignorantia Of Learned Ignorance , which was published in This work consists of three books: the first deals with God the Self Maximus considered absolutely , the second deals with the universe Self maximum contracted in the Plurality of Things , and the third of Jesus Christ Self up as contracted and all at once.

The title -which is an oxymoron- has a deep significance. On the one hand it relates to Socrates' irony -"I only know that I know nothing"- in the belief that it is impossible for a student to deepen his knowledge in his search for truth. It is also a negative theology, the recognition that the Being of God cannot be reached by our understanding. Our current edition presents an illustrated version of the First Book.

Cusanus, Nicolaus [Nicolas of Cusa]

Arguably the most important German thinker of fifteenth century, Nicholas of Cusa — was also an ecclesiastical reformer, administrator and cardinal. His life-long effort was to reform and unite the universal and Roman Church, whether as canon law expert at the Council of Basel and after, as legate to Constantinople and later to German dioceses and houses of religion, as bishop in his own diocese of Brixen, and as advisor in the papal curia. His active life as a Church administrator and bishop found written expression in several hundred Latin sermons and more theoretical background in his writings on ecclesiology, ecumenism, mathematics, philosophy and theology. Cusanus had an open and curious mind.
