Frontispiece – The division of nature comprises four stages, according to the medieval scholar Honorius Augustodunensis in his ‘Clavis physicae’ (The Key of Nature). The manuscript is preserved in the Michelsberg Cloister near Bamberg, but was probably written in the area of the Meuse, mid-twelfth century (Paris, Bibl. Nat. lat. 6734). The ‘materia informis’, or potential matter, consists of four faces. It is placed by Honorius in the triple division of the second stage of the (fourfold) division of nature, with Tempus to the left and Logos to the right.
