Sophia (Wisdom) in the Celsus Library in Ephesus


By Giordano Bruno 1548-1600

“The divine Sophia have I loved and sought from my youth; I have desired her to be my spouse.  Ever have I loved and her beauteous radiant form.  Ever have I prayed that she might be sent to abide with me, that she might work with me to the end that I might know what I lacked and what in me God would find acceptable.  And since she had ever known and understood, had guided me in all my life’s activity, I am persuaded that even after death she will ever keep me safe, wrapped securely in her watchful constant love.”
