Chapter Summary

In author's book, Gregory of Nyssa, The Letters, he was concerned to search for letters of Gregorys authorship beyond the thirty appearing in the two critical editions. Among the six or seven new letters, the one that most fascinated me was the so-called Epistula ad Philippum monachum (Letter to the Monk Philip). The existence of this otherwise lost letter was long known from three surviving Greek fragments: the title, the Incipit, and a short theological passage preserved by the outstanding 6th century defender of Chalcedon, Leontius of Jerusalem, and by John Damascene in the 8th century.

Keywords: Gregory of Nyssa; John Damascene; Letter to the Monk Philip
