Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cataphatic (sometimes spelled kataphatic) theology is the expressing of God or the divine/ Ultimate Reality through positive terminology. This is in contrast to defining God or the divine/ Ultimate Reality in what God/ Ultimate Reality is not, which is referred to as negative or apophatic theology. To speak of God or the divine kataphatically is by its nature a form of limiting to God or divine. This was one of the core tenets of the works of St Dionysus the Aeropagite. By defining what God or the divine is we limit the unlimited as Saint Dionysus outlined in his works. A kataphatic way to express God would be that God is love. The apophatic way would be to express that God is not hate. Or to say that God is not love, as he transcends even our notion of love.
