Abstract: 

Bernardus is a twelfth century thinker whose most important work is “Cosmographia” in which he uses Greek and Roman mythology, Neo- Platonism and Christian dogma in order to elaborate a theory of the cosmos and mankind. In this work he is credited with having given a well-thought mixture of mythology, philosophy and Christian teachings. A cursory look at the work shows that the religious language used by Bernardus is not one of the regular languages such as affirmative, apophatic, negative, cataphatic, or superlative theology, but rather a mystic-allegorical language. In other words, Bernardus, by fusing different teachings into a coherent system and presenting it with a mystic-allegorical language, manages to harness a heretical form to attest Christian teachings.
