COLET ON GOD AND CREATION
This chapter will show that the chief source of Colet Letters to Radulphus on the Mosaic Account of Creation is St. Augustine, both directly and in some instances through the medium of Ficino. It is therefore not surprising that Colet, in his treatment of the Platonic and Plotinian outlooks on God and creation, should have followed Augustine's Clementine approach.1____________________
