Quotation"La Sophie est La Sagesse de Dieu, elle est la gloire de Dieu, est l'humanite en Dieu, elle est la Theanthropie, le corps de Dieu, le Monde Divin, etant en dieu ‘des avant' la creation. C'est là que se trouve ‘le fondement suffisant' de la creation"¦le fondement de sa sophianite." ["Sophia is the Wisdom of God, the glory of God is humanity in God, the ‘theanthropy,' body of God, the divine world which was in God at creation. It is there that one finds the sufficient reason of creation"¦the foundation of Wisdomness."] Bulgakov. p. 38.
