QuotationThank you for the photostats from the [Catholic] Encyclopedia [on Wisdom]. I looked them over, and they just begin to touch on the mysterious doctrine. Carolyn should try to get for the Library a book by Sergius Bolgakov, called The Wisdom of God, published in London in the thirties. It would cover very well the Sophia theme. I have notes on it, but the book is very technical in its way.
