Revelation is the value that suddenly supervenes on a psychological event.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    Revelación es el valor que le sobreviene de pronto a un hecho psicológico.

  2. Cf. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Contra Gentiles III, 154, n. 4: « Quae quidem revelatio fit quodam interiori et intelligibili lumine mentem elevante ad percipiendum ea ad quae per lumen naturale intellectus pertingere non potest.” (Revelation is “accomplished by means of a certain interior and intelligible light, elevating the mind to the perception of things that the understanding cannot reach by its natural light.” Tr. Bill Vallicella.)
