De Sacramentis 1.1.16

1.1.16 “Whether God worked for six days without interval, or in some other manner.” Hugh wonders if God’s resting on the seventh day means that he was continually and unceasingly creating on the previous six days, or if it only means that there was no day-long interval between any two acts of God’s creation until the arrival of the seventh day. Hugh seems to find either position tenable: the former position, for example, involves God not only first creating the light but then subsequently directing it until “it completed its course;” the latter position, by contrast, he distinguishes as “easy and more readily adapted to reason for understanding.”
