This volume offers a translation with introduction and notes of Henry of Ghent’s questions on the being and essence of God from his Summa of Ordinary Questions(Summa quaestionum ordinarium). These questions form the heart of Henry’s philosophy of God, especially his “new way” of proving the existence of God and his claim that God is the first object known by the human intellect.
