Q13 A10: Whether this name "God" is applied to God univocally by nature, by participation, and according to opinion?

No. This name "God" in the three aforesaid significations is taken neither univocally nor equivocally, but analogically because it is manifest that the name has different meanings, but that one of them is comprised in the other significations.

The multiplication of names does not depend on the predication of the name, but on the signification.

Neither a Catholic nor a pagan knows the very nature of God as it is in itself; but each one knows it according to some idea of causality, or excellence, or remotion.
