Consequently deitas est in lapide conjures up images of idolatry, while deitas est in pane is a possible statement about the Eucharist. The Biblical text also put the classical rhetoricians’ translatio and its communicative value under the nose of the theologian. Roger Bacon developed the idea that the interlocutor could ‘renew the meaning’ of a word (Rosier 1994:135).

Significare ..... dictio .... .. 5: Imposition of Dictio In an important article on naming God, Rosier (1995:138) discusses the use of the term, modus significandi , by thirteenth-century theologians. In the first place they utilise a modus significandi ut which pertains to the general semantics of essence. Modus significandi ut depends on a type of feature analysis, as in concrete and abstract nouns. Take the analysis of deus and deitas by Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury at the end of the twelfth century, in Ebessen (1987:426): ‘deus’ significat deitatem — ut rem animantem et agentem et personam — ut inhaerentem / participatam — ut cuius aliquid est; ‘deitas’ significat deitatem — ut subsistentem -– ut proprietatem — ut quae est alicuius Because such modi significandi bring semantically based syntactic constraints, they raise questions of congruity.
At its most radical the similitude between thing and image in the mind was harnessed to turn the Aristotelian model of intellection to mystical theology with crucial consequences for the theory of the dictio: Nam ex memoria oritur intelligentia ut ipsius proles, quia nunc intelligimus, cum similitudo, quae est in memoria, resultat in acie intellectus, quae nihil aliud est quam verbum; ex memoria et intelligentia spiratur amor tamquam nexus amborum. 68]) Participation is a universal: everything that is participates in being and is something individual by participating in something else.
