Title:God as Architect/Builder/Geometer/Craftsman
Notes:The Frontispiece of Bible Moralisee (Codex Vindobonensis 2554) -- "Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy/astrology, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God's act of Creation. God has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God." [from Wikimedia]
