Core Statement (After Proclus, Platonic Theology Book I, Chapter 3):
Theology concerns those things first by nature according to a given philosophy. Thus, for the philosophy which takes the unit as its highest principle, theology is the study of the divine individuals, and as such concerns not what they are, but Who.
Being is conceived theologically as the result of the action of divine individuals. The form of this action is iconic and narrative. The theological interpretation of such icons or narratives consists in explicating the plane or region of Being enacted in them.
