Description:

“The question ‘How was the mentü ship Steered’ bears two meanings: as inference in the sense of ‘faith,’ as well as the relation between the notions of ‘imagery, logos, and action.’ The answer is ‘divine love,’ regardless of the form of the question: the Amentü ship is navigated by the love of God. ” Zeynep Gemuhluoglu, tsa.org: https://www.tsa.org.tr/en/yazi/yazidetay/67/%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BDmentu-gemisi-nasil-yurudu (16 Oct 2019).
