ON GOD AND MAN: THE THEOLOGICAL POETRY OF ST. GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS

Author: ST. GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS<BR /> TRANSLATED BY PETER GILBERT #: 12683
St Gregory is one of the most open and self-revealing of the Fathers of the Church, and his poetry is remarkable for its personal character. In these poems, he speaks of the joys and frustrations of his own life; he reveals his inner questioning about the purpose and values of life in the face of sin and mortality, and his ultimate faith in Christ as redeeming and reconciling all things. St Gregory`s poetry has often been compared with St Augustine`s Confessions, as showing a peculiarly modern interest in the self. The translations here presented allow the reader to see that self-reflection in its theological context.

ON THE UNITY OF CHRIST

Author: ST CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA TRANSLATED BY JOHN ANTHONY MCGUCKIN #: 12684
In the early fifth century the Christian world was racked by one of the fiercest theological disputes it had known since the Arian crisis of the previous century. The center of debate turned on the nature of the personhood of Christ, and how divine and human characteristics could combine in Jesus without rendering his subjectivity hopelessly divided, or without reducing his authentic humanness to an insubstantiality.

ON THE COSMIC MYSTERY OF JESUS CHRIST

Author: ST MAXIMUS THE CONFESSOR<BR /> TRANSLATED BY PAUL M. BLOWERS AND ROBERT WILKEN #: 12685
The last half of the twentieth century saw the establishment of the reputation of St Maximus the Confessor as the greatest of all Byzantine theologians, with a wholeness of vision that speaks directly to many of our concerns today. Until very recently, however, little of his work has been available in English translation, save for some collections of brief reflections arranged in centuries and a few brief treatises, too easily classified as "spirituality." This volume provides translations from St Maximus, two main collections of theological reflections, his Ambigua (or Difficulties) and his Questions to Thalassius, plus one of his Christological opuscula, hitherto unavailable in English.
