As Dubay explains, "The glory of the Lord, therefore, is the supereminently
luminous beauty of divinity beyond all experience and all descriptions, all categories, a beauty before which all earthly splendors, marvelous as they are, pale into insignificance" (45).
Only sometimes the thorough-bass I contrive to guess at, from its being supereminently
harsh and disagreeable.
That is the doctrine of analogy we find primarily in Thomas Aquinas's own writings reduced to the main point that even in the case of names applied properly if supereminently
to the divine existence, the acquisition of signification by these names within the context of sensible experience remains regulative.
