His finite energies might mirror, however dimly, God’s eternal power. It is no wonder, then, that the metaphor of the circle to explain God furnished a steadying principle in the face of scientific questions about the earth’s motion. All the while, the finite imagination might gain or posit a place to consider here (everyday material practice) and there (possibilities of the imaginative spirit) and so gain some relative ground—whether poet, craftsman, scientist, theologian, teacher, parent—or prescient human being.
By this motion of mind—this pedagogical exercise—we begin to understand. We might recall Samuel Johnson’s argument that if we asked him to tell whether a building were large or small, he would take quite a while to explain the buildings he himself had seen and then to learn which buildings his questioner knew. If, however, the questioner wanted to know the geometric design of a particular building, his answer would be brief: the distinction lies in the collective imagination on the one hand and a model on the other.
In fact, Chenu will go on to argue, “Faith was being fashioned into science” (279–80). The model quantifier, of course, is God, Whose creative practice (meotodes maehte) has none of the human craftsman’s limitations or pressures since He knows everything and, moreover, has eternity to devise and carry out His plan. If God is the master measurer, then those scientific spiritualists, like Thomas Bradwardine, were naturally compelled toward some irritable reaching after fact. 48 Her title sets out the issue: “view” and “vision”/”time” and “eternity”—what is countable and what is not.
