Transcript of St. Bonaventure

St. Bonaventure
Saint Bonaventure mainly taught about the Creation but also the end of the world. Whereas many others firmly believed in the eternity of Earth, St. Bonaventure disagreed and insisted it would end someday. From this, others have derived ideas of the Last Judgement. His main focus was that God created angels and humans when He created light, and humans were created in His image.

He is referenced in the CCC at 293: "St. Bonaventure explains that God created all things..."
According to St. Bonaventure, light is not a just a physical substance. It is representative of more intangible qualities. Light is the first thing created by God, and it lead to other things.
Angels & Demons
He acknowledged that the creation of light also signals the creation of angels. Dark has to come along with light, and this is where demons (and the bad angels) come from.
