Overview

These proceedings present the first English translation of Gregory's "Homilies on the Beatitudes" by Stuart Hall, accompanied by a thorough commentary by Anthony Meredith, Andreas Spira, Francoise Vinel, Lucas Mateo-Seco, Thomas Bohm, Karl-Heinz Uthemann, Claudio Moreschini and Robert Wilken. Eight more contributions by Monique Alexandre, Peter Bruns, Judith Kovacs, Salvatore Lilla, Friedhelm Mann, Alden Mosshammer, Elias Moutsoulas and Lucian Turcescu focus on further general and particular topics of the homilies as their eschatology, the meaning of the word "makarios" in all of Gregory's works, the notion of justice, and Gregory's Theology of Adoption, as well as their relationships to Syriac theology, Clement of Alexandria, Neoplatonism, and Gregory's "Homilies on the Song of Songs". The third and fourth part add ten studies reflecting the present overall state of Gregorian research.
