St. Gregory of Nyssa on the Human Soul: Its Nature, Origin, Relation to the Body, Faculties, and Destiny.

   
By John P. Cavarnos
Edited and revised by Constantine Cavarnos

“For St. Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa in Capadocia, Asia Minor, the problem of the soul is a pivot on which many an important subject is hinged. This preoccupation with the human soul is so prominent in the thought of Gregory, that a special study of his psychology offers a good approach to the teaching or paideia of this great Church Father. [...]Though a central Christian problem, the study of the soul had not been taken up by the Fathers of the Church in as comprehensive a manner as the subject merited. That was essentially the task of Gregory of Nyssa.”
