Creatio Ex Nihilo

CREATIO EX NIHILO

Latin for “Creation out of nothing”

In classical thought, Christianity alone, or more precisely, the Judeo-Christian tradition, knows the notion of absolute creation. Creatio ex nihilo (“creation out of nothing”) is a dogma of the faith. God has not created starting from something, but starting with what is not, from “nothingness”. It is the work of the will of God, and therefore is not co-eternal with God (it has a beginning and will have an end).

“Is Creatio Ex Nihilo a Post-Biblical Invention? An Examination of Gerhard May’s Proposal” by Paul Copan.
