Abstract Illumination of the reader of Scripture is best understood as an element in the economy of the Holy Spirit who renews human intelligence. The Spirit who illuminates the mind is (1) the eternal Spirit who shares in the divine nature and the divine wisdom; (2) the one who gives life to rational creatures, sustaining creaturely intellectual movement, regenerating created intellectual nature and overcoming ignorance and darkness. As the Spirit of revelation, he oversees the production of Holy Scripture and the processes of its reception, enabling created intelligence to know the divine mind which Scripture sets forth, and sanctifying the exercise of proper creaturely powers.
