De Temano. cap. 118.
THE number of thrée is called Ter∣narius, and is gendered of one put to twaine, and is most holy among num∣bers, for therein is sound the lykenesse of the holy Trinitie. For as the first v∣nitie of the first principall representeth one, so Ternarius presenteth the Trini∣tie of persons in God. For by generati∣on the Sonne commeth of the Father, and by procession the holye Ghost com∣meth of the Father and of the sonne. Al∣so Aristotle taught to worship the glori∣ous and most high God in the number of thrée, as it is said in li. de Caelo & Mun∣do. cap. 2. For euery creature cryeth and preacheth the holy trinitie, that is three persons, and one God, that made all tre∣asures, in number, weight, & measure, as it is sayd Sap. 11.
