The Winged Man represents the Gospel of Matthew, who focused on the Via Positiva through the humanity of Christ Jesus and his teaching of the Way of Light.
“In the Via Positiva. In awe, wonder, and mystery of nature and all beings, each of whom is a ‘word of God,’ a ‘mirror of God that glistens and glitters,’ as Hildegard of Bingen put it. This is Path One.”
— Matthew Fox, Creation Spirituality, 18
