Chapter Summary

In the fifth part of the third book Contra Eunomium Gregory of Nyssa discussed basically two themes: (1) Eunomius' interpretation of the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 3:17 ("The Lord is the Spirit"), to whose refutation he adds a small treatise on the biblical exegesis; and (2) the distinction between unbegotten/fathered on the one hand and uncreated/created on the other, and their significance for the doctrine of the Trinity. This chapter presents the different semantics of proper names in their relevance to the doctrine of the Trinity, and by no means not only the two main themes of the fifth part. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: 2 Corinthians 3:17; Contra Eunomium; doctrine of the Trinity; Gregory of Nyssa; unbegotten; uncreated
