      Negative theology - also known as the "Via Negativa" (Latin for "Negative Way") and Apophatic theology - is a theology that attempts to describe God by negation, to speak of God only in terms of what may not be said about God.. In brief, the attempt is to gain and express knowledge of God by describing what God is "not" ("apophasis "), rather than by describing what God "is".
