Perhaps the most profound and subtle of the Cappadocian Fathers, Gregory here reads Moses' ascent of Mt. Sinai as an image of the stages of spiritual progression in the knowledge of God. Solidly rooted in orthodox doctrine and ecclesial life, The Life of Moses is yet a landmark in the history of Christian mystical literature. Preface By John Meyendorff.
