On the Soul and the Resurrection

St Gregory of Nyssa
Translated from the Greek and introduced by Catharine P. Roth

Number 12 of Popular Patristics Series

“One of the major points of disagreement between Christianity and Greek thought was the doctrine of the resurrection. Hence Gregory’s Dialogue on the Soul and the Resurrection provides an example of the encounter between Christianity and Greek culture. It shows us both how Gregory proceeded to deal with the problems in his own intellectual development and how the Church as a whole worked towards a synthesis of the two traditions.”
