Chapter Summary

This chapter subtly questions the agreement between the two elements of the divine and the human, to critically illuminate the related question of a latent monophysitism in the versions of Gregory of Nyssa. This is based on the parts 3 and 4 of Contra III Eunomium with comparative reference to another of his purely christological writings, such as the Antirrheticus adversus Appollinarium and the letter Ad Theophilum. The execution of Gregory in CE III 3 and 4 approaches the christology of Chalcedon from an unmixed and undivided union of the divine and the human. In this close connection, the first is transcended, while the second one changes to the higher subject without losing its integrity. This connection is more of a relationship than a total absorption of the human from the divine. Thus any suspicion of monophysitism is eliminated. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: christology; Contra III Eunomium; divine; Gregory of Nyssa; human; monophysitism
