Nicholas of Cusa Quotes

Nicholas of Cusa (1401 – 1464) was a German philosopher, theologian, jurist, and astronomer. He entered the Faculty of Arts of the Heidelberg University in 1416 as a “cleric of the Diocese of Trier,” studying the liberal arts. Afterwards, he entered the University of Cologne in 1425 as “a Doctor of Canon Law,” where he appears to have both taught and practiced there. After a successful career as a papal envoy, he was made a cardinal in 1448, and in 1450 he was both named Bishop of Brixen, in Tyrol, and commissioned as a papal legate to the German lands to spread the message of reform. He made spiritual and political contributions in European history, and was noted for his deeply mystical writings about Christianity.
