Chapter Summary

Gregory of Nyssa sets forth a two-fold division of the divine names that make a relationship, and relationship to something else for expression. Names of this kind can be divided into two classes: (1) there are those who show the diversity of divine providence toward men; and (2) there are those who point to the height and ineffable divine glory. As examples of the first class Gregory cites the names vine, pastor and doctor. As examples of the second class are the names son, right hand, native logos, and wisdom and power of the Father. This chapter discusses the location of the underlying distinction between two types of expressing a relation name with a focus mainly on the names of father and son. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: divine names; father; Gregory of Nyssa; relationship; son
