Festal Orations

   
St Gregory of Nazianzus
Translation with Introduction and Commentary by Nonna Verna Harrison

Number 36 of Popular Patristics Series

“In the Orthodox church Gregory of Nazianzus (ca. AD 329–ca. 390) is known as ‘the Theologian,’ a title he shares only with the apostle and evangelist John, and is among the most honored of the saints. Together with his colleagues Basil the Great (ca. 329–379) and Gregory of Nyssa (ca. 335–395), he is one of the three Cappadocian fathers, and together with Basil and John Chrysostom (ca. 347–407) he is one of the ‘three great hierarchs and ecumenical teachers’ of the Eastern church. His reputation and influence in the Byzantine world as both theologian and rhetor are unsurpassed in ways that Western scholars have sometimes overlooked. The homilies translated in this volume have arguably been the most influential of his works throughout the Orthodox church’s history.”
