Amor Dei, “love of God” increases 3 questions: How will we comprehend God is love? How will we adventure love of God? How unfastened are we to like God? This publication offers 3 different types of love, worldly, religious, and divine to appreciate God’s love. The paintings starts off with Augustine’s Confessions highlighting his Manichean and Neoplatonic classes ahead of his conversion to Christianity. Augustine’s disagreement with Pelagius anticipates the unresolved disputes relating God’s love and unfastened will. within the sixteenth-century the Italian humanist, Gasparo Contarini introduces the idea of “divine amplitude” to illustrate how God’s goodness is manifested within the human agent. Pierre de Bérulle, Guillaume Gibieuf, and Nicolas Malebranche exhibit connections with Contarini within the seventeenth-century controversies concerning unfastened will and divine love. in accordance with the unfastened will dispute, the Scottish thinker, William Chalmers, bargains his answer. Cornelius Jansen relentlessly asserts his anti-Pelagian interpretation of Augustine stirring up extra controversy. John Norris, Malebranche’s English disciple, exchanges his perspectives with Mary Astell and Damaris Masham. within the culture of Cambridge Platonism, Ralph Cudworth conveys a God who “sweetly governs.” The association of sections represents the affection of God in ascending-descending hobbies demonstrating that, “human love is inseparable from divine love.”
