Creation and the Word
This chapter examines Anselm's development of a claim that God created all things other than himself from nothing. Anselm speaks of this act of creation as involving an “utterance” (locutio) or Word by which God made all things. Though Anselm first introduces the Word in the Monologion to account for God's understanding of creatures, he develops his doctrine of the Word in such a way that it becomes the first element of his theory of the Trinity.
