Christ in the Life and Teaching of Gregory of Nazianzus

Andrew Hofer, O.P.

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • First published book devoted to an overview of the Christology of Gregory of Nazianzus
  • Extensive use of the full range of Gregory's orations, letters, and the poetry usually overlooked in doctrinal study
  • Provides Gregory's "Theology of the Word," uniting theological and rhetorical approaches to studying Gregory's thought
  • Argues that Gregory's language of mixture, which was later a source of confusion and embarrassment in Christological controversies, expresses some of his own deepest held and pervasive convictions
  • Demonstrates how Gregory, named "the Theologian" for speaking so well about God, is thoroughly autobiographical in speaking about himself
