Resources for Studying the Cappadocian Fathers

I’m off to Louisville again today for my doctoral seminar on the Cappadocians with Dr. Michael Haykin at Southern Seminary. I thought I would let you in on a few resources that we’ve been using in our class:

Primary Sources:
On the Holy Spirit
by Basil the Great
On God and Christ: The Five Theological Orations and Two Letters to Cledonius by St. Gregory of Nazianzus
The Life of Saint Macrina by St. Gregory of Nyssa

Secondary Sources:
The Cappadocians
by Anthony Meredith
The Church and the Charisma of Leadership in Basil of Caesarea by Paul Fedwick
Basil of Caesarea by Philip Rousseau
St. Gregory of Nazianzus: An Intellectual Biography by John McGuckin
