Theologia a Cruce

Henri de Lubac:
If theology, according to a much-used equivalent expression perpetuated by St. Thomas at the beginning of the Summa, is the science of the Scriptures, then in truth it may be said that the whole of theology is Theologia Crucis [Theology of the Cross], that is Theologia a Cruce [Theology from the Cross]. For it is the Cross which disperses the cloud which until then was hiding the truth.
