Long time ago, when I was reading the bible (Chinese version, Studium Biblicum), there was a commentary in Genesis 1:26-28, which explains about the human.

人相似天主是按灵魂说的相似天主有理智、意志和记忆。[Studium Biblicum commentary Gen 1:26-28]

Translated to English (by me): “Man is similar to God, is according to the soul which is similar to God, who has rational thinking, mind, and memory.”

Therefore, recently I searched from the internet about the “rational thinking, mind, and memory”. Then I found that, actually these three attributes are “memory, understanding, and will”. They are the faculties of a soul, according to St Augustine of Hippo.
