Abstract
The thesis has been written out of a concern for the lack of connection that exists, both in theology and the secular world, between the work of the Holy Spirit and Creation. Using the method of a literature survey, the thesis has identified those points in history where the link between the Holy Spirit and Creation has been lost. This thesis has been designed to connect the findings of modern day physics and cosmology to the characteristics of the work of the Holy Spirit in Creation. The thesis has reached the conclusion that theology, especially in the last five hundred [500] years, has largely deleted from its deliberations references to the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit’s work in Creation and has identified those influences which caused that to happen. It has further shown that the findings of modern physics and cosmology have consonances with those things that characterize the work of the Holy Spirit in Creation. These conclusions point to a way in which the Holy Spirit and Creation can be re-connected and the sacramentalism of nature re-established.
