Prima Causa - XXXXX

First Cause

Prima Causa finally is the last and ultimate allegory of the Mantegna deck, meant to be God himself. It derives from Aristotle's idea of the 'Unmoved Mover', based on the thought that, when everything moves in the world, something must move it. This something he saw as the utmost perfect, and Christian scholars like Aquinus quickly concluded that this could only be God.
