Soliloquium is a Latin word meaning “soliloquy.” It is a term used by St. Anselm in the preface of his Proslogion to describe the approach to theology in this book and his earlier Monologion, which he identifies as a contemplative meditation on God’s being. This blog is my own place for meditation on God, theology, and various other books and ideas that I am currently wrestling with. I use it to discuss my convictions, share material I have found helpful, review books, and give personal updates. My primary purpose is to learn – for me, writing is a part of the learning process. Its also fun to interact with others along the way, so please feel free to leave comments.
I do not try, Lord, to attain Your lofty heights, because my understanding is in no way equal to it. But I do desire to understand Your truth a little, that truth that my heart believes and loves. For I do not seek to understand so that I may believe; but I believe so that I may understand. For I believe this also, that ‘unless I believe, I shall not understand’ (Anselm, Proslogion, chapter 1).
