By John P. 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.”
