Gregory of Nyssa on the Trinity
The current issue of the Review of Biblical Literature contains a very nice review of a new book from Brill on Gregory of Nyssa’s Ad Ablabium. Those of you from the Greek Fathers class will remember (maybe) that this is a key text for understanding Gregory’s trinitarian theology, and consequently it is a key text for understanding Nicene theology as a whole. The book itself, Trinity and Man: Gregory of Nyssa’s Ad Ablabium, might be a little out of your price range ($138 on Amazon), but the review is fairly thorough, dealing briefly with such issues as social trinitarianism and apophaticism, with a more extended discussion of whether Gregory was a universalist. If you’re interested in Gregory of Nyssa in general or this work in particular, the review is worth your time.
