Summary/Abstract: This paper uses the tools of mathematical analysis to try and shed light on the age-old question of whether a monotheist God would be simultaneously present everywhere in the wider Universe, or whether It would rather usually keep to privileged locations within space-time. On the narrow basis of where the mathematics leads, it reaches an unexpected but definite conclusion.
