Gregory of Nyssa, Part Two
This continues the conversation with Tony Golsby-Smith, who has a distressing ability to keep me on topic. Here the principal text under examination is On the Soul and Resurrection. Part Three will appear soon, and there I spend a good deal of time praising the genius of Augustine. Here, not so much so. On the exegesis of Paul’s eschatology and theology of election, Gregory was clearly the better reader.
Excuse the somewhat raspy quality of my voice. It was a week of high pollen counts and I was drowning in the beauty of the lilies.
