Chapter Summary

The text presented by Jaeger in GNO while translating Gregory are matters of punctuation, such as the exact location of a question mark, or a difference of opinion as to whether Gregory is quoting from Eunomius or representing his opponent's views in his own words. This chapter's general aim is to present all the thoughts of Gregory of Nyssa as he might have written them, had he been using modern, philosophically informed, English. It offers the author's own analysis, altered in the light of Lenka Karfikova's independent proposals, Joseph S. O'Leary's penetrating criticisms, and the published scheme of Bernard Pottier. Since some scholars habitually refer to lines and pages, the page-turns in GNO I are indicated by numbers in square brackets. The author has added fifteen main headings and numerous subheadings to Gregory's text in order to help in understanding.

Keywords: GNO; Gregory of Nyssa; Jaeger; Lenka Karfikova
