Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Gregory of Nyssa: The Letters Introduction, Translation and Commentary presents the Table of Contents, the Preface and Acknowledgements, the list of abbreviations, and a map of Central Anatolia in the time of the Cappadocian Fathers. As a letter writer St Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335-394) runs a poor third to the other two Cappadocian Fathers - St Basil the Great and St Gregory Nazianzen. Present critical editions muster a mere 30 letters for Gregory of Nyssa. Nevertheless, as this book shows, the younger Gregory was an assiduous writer of letters. The authors state that it has proved possible in the book to make some significant additions to the established collection of thirty.

Keywords: Cappadocian Fathers; Central Anatolia; Gregory of Nyssa
