Volume 107 of The Fathers of the Church: A New Translation

“The sermons translated here represent those omitted from the Select Library of Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church. Since Orations 4 and 5, Against Julian, are easily accessible[...], they have not been included in the present volume. Of the remaining nineteen sermons, [...]most are appearing here in English for the first time. These sermons span all the phases of Gregory’s ecclesiastical career, beginning with his service as a parish priest assisting his father, the elder Gregory, in his hometown of Nazianzus in the early 360’s, to his stormy tenure as bishop of Constantinople from 379–81, to his subsequent return to Nazianzus and role as interim caretaker of his home church (382–83). The subject matter is similarly diverse and ranges from the purely theological to the deeply personal, but throughout Gregory stands revealed as an individual deeply engaged in the pursuit of social and political justice, whether this pursuit is conducted in an overt or covert manner. Finally, Gregory expresses himself in a variety of rhetorical forms such as the lalia and encomium.”
