Cusanus birthplace

Bernkastel-Kues · Mosel

The birthplace of Nicholas of Kues is now a museum and is located on the banks of the Moselle in Kues. Nicholas of Kues was one of the great universal scholars of the Renaissance: jurist, philosopher, theologian, astronomer and taught in many subjects. He was essentially influenced by his profession as priest and cardinal. He constantly looked for ways to God, but he realized that we cannot grasp God with our thinking.
