So far, the theory has covered only the modal status of secular propositions. The non-secular include those of pure logic and mathematics and those involving God, divine attributes, and so on. This chapter provides a theory of their modal status. It focusses particularly on the claims that God’s existence is possible and necessary, which it argues to be the key to the others’ status.

Keywords: God; modal status; secular proposition; non-secular proposition; logic; mathematics; possible; necessary
