Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Brill Dictionary of Gregory of Nyssa contains the table of contents, preface, list of contributors, list of entries, gregorys works and list of abbreviations. Gregory of Nyssas approach to truth is based on a wonder like that of children, a wonder that is born of knowledge of the inexhaustible depth of being, as expressed in the apophatic dimension of his thought. Knowledge is thus founded in marvelling, in the perception of the transcendence of the True and the Good, which come to the human being, as to Moses and the Spouse of the Canticle, only in personal encounter.
