This mathematico-theological study addresses the Cantor's mathematics and theology of the infinite. From the scientific perspective, Cantor's landmark works opened the definition and logic of infinity in concreto, in abstracto, and in Deo. According to Cantor, the absolute infinite ${\Omega}$ could imply God's property beyond the actual infinite in physical and mathematical worlds.
