Gregory of Nyssa was perhaps the most Brilliant and subtle of the Cappadocian Fathers. His writing is characterized by a critical adoption of Neoplatonism, fascinating allegorical interpretations of the Old Testament and profound reflections on religious experience. Many think Gregory's unforgettable ruminations on darkness to be the seed from which St. John of the Cross's teaching developed. 298 pp.
An Eighth Day View:
Long recognized as an authoritative introduction to the "father of mysticism, " Gregory of Nyssa exploded classical antiquity's static understanding of perfection by showing the Christian life as one of never-ending growth.
