Christianity made a Christian reading of the classical logos by placing it in the prologue of the Gospel of Saint John. In this study we expose the way in which Buenaventura makes a reflection on the logos as verbum that is actually a theology of the divine logos and, therefore, a Christological theology within the mystery of the being and the goodness of the divine Trinity. This supposes that the theology of the logos manifests ad intra in unity from Trinitarian theology, using the parameters proper to the emanative philosophy (de emanatione) and ad extra in the plurality from the theology of creation, using exemplary philosophy (de exemplaritate). Bonaventurian metaphysics thus tries to explain the metaphysical planes and the dynamism of unity and multiplicity leading to the consummation (de consummatione) as the definitive place of the expression of the logos, thus completing the metaphysical structure of Buenaventura as entitive (quidditas) and significant (significatio).
