Gregory of Nyssa - The Life of Moses
Here is an award-winning, new translation that brings to light Gregory's complex identity as an early mystic. Gregory (c. 332-395) was one of the Greek Cappadocian Fathers, along with St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen. Gregory is the founder of mystical theology in the Church. The Life of Moses has special significance because it reflects Gregory's spiritual sense of the Scriptures whose purpose is to elevate the soul to God. Gregory shows how Moses was a type of Christ.
