These proceedings present the results of the 11th International Colloquium on Gregory of Nyssa held in Tübingen in 2008. The Trinitarian thought of Gregory deserves special attention because of its importance for the ending of the Trinitarian controversy in the late fourth century, paving the way for the widely accepted Trinitarian theology in the fifth century. This volume (which does not include Contra Eunomium) offers a contribution to the research on Gregory's Trinitarian theology as it is present notably in his so-called minor treatises. It provides a German translation of Ad Eustathium, Ad Graecos, Ad Ablabium, Ad Simplicium, Adversus Macedonianos, and De deitate filii. Detailed analysis of each treatise is accompanied by supporting studies on related theological and philosophical themes, followed by contributions which take into consideration the link between Gregory's Trinitarian thought and the christological question (In illud tunc et ipse filius, the anti-Apollinarist works).

Ilaria L. E. Ramelli
Apokatastasis (restoration) is a major Patristic doctrine stemming from Greek philosophy and Jewish-Christian Scriptures. Ramelli argues for its presence and Christological and Biblical foundation in many Fathers, analysing its meaning and development from the birth of Christianity to Eriugena.

Timo Nisula, University of Helsinki
In Augustine and the Functions of Concupiscence, Timo Nisula offers a comprehensive analysis of Augustine’s developing views of sinful desire. The book demonstrates how and why concupiscence became such a pregnant concept in Augustine’s theology and philosophy.
Tracing the gradual crystallisation of Augustine’s doctrine on grace in the individual periods of his thinking, this book also shows the unacceptable consequences of Augustine’s teaching as criticised by his Pelagian opponents.
Edmon L. Gallagher, Heritage Christian University
Though Christians used Greek translations of the Bible, many Fathers acknowledged that the status of their Old Testament as originally Hebrew scripture bore certain implications for their biblical theory, especially for the canon, language, and text of scripture.
Benjamin Gleede, University of Zürich
Examining the usage of the term ἐνυπόστατος throughout the Patristic period, this study illustrates the gradual change in its meaning from stressing the hypostatical independence of the trinitarian persons to upholding the reality of Christ's two natures in his unique hypostasis.
