22 henryk anzulewicz with Augustine and Peter Lombard, as the entire real and symbolic reality which theology considers from the perspective of its goal. This perspective is directed towards heavenly bliss (beatitudo). 22 Albert discusses theological subject matter in a similar fashion, although more extensively and thus more elaborately, but with essentially the same result in his Summa theologiae sive de mirabili scientia Dei, 1. He establishes it from three perspectives: (1) inasmuch as the prime concern in this science is to strive for knowledge of Him and everything else is treated with regard to this; (2) inasmuch as theology demonstrates His attributes and thereby gives Him determination; and (3) inasmuch as theology considers Him for the sake of the clarity and the quality of its doctrine concerning the aforementioned primary subject or other theological subject areas.

28. , 1, 1, lns. 57–65: “Ista igitur bonitas est naturae in omni creatura dei inventa; sed et haec bonitas ordinat et manuducit ad deum. Est enim vestigium trinitatis et unitatis bonum istud: unitatis, quia in una re ista inveniuntur; trinitatis, quia tria sunt, quae in re qualibet considerantur. ’ Verständnis und hermeneutische Funktion der Kreislaufformel bei Albertus Magnus,” in Chemins de la pensée médiévale. Études offerts à Zénon Kaluza, ed. M. Bakker (Turnholt: 2002), 323–350, esp. 342–350.

Albert makes no such distinctions with respect to theology, however. His concern focuses on the unity of theology as a science, which is grounded on the unity of its subject. In the same manner in which Albert established theology’s subject matter and unity from its goal in the Sentences commentary, so too does he determine the specific affective nature of this science. This results from the interaction between a complex unity of theology’s more immediate goals and its ultimate goal. According to the Apostle Paul (Titus 1:1–2) truth, equivalent to godliness (veritas secundum pietatem), is the object of theology, possessing an objective and a subjective moment.
