Origins of a Name

The title of this blogspot, Deus Creator Omnium, comes from a Latin hymn of the church father Ambrose of Milan, teacher of St. Augustine in the 4th Century (and partly responsible for his conversion to Christianity).

"God, Creator of earth and sky,
Ruling the firmament on high,
Clothing the day with robes of light,
Blessing with gracious sleep the night."
--stanza 1 from The English Hymnal by Charles Bigg
