Gregory of Nazianzus Letter 101 to Cledonius §1 - §16 [in] On God and Christ: the five theological orations and two letters to Cledonius . To our most reverend and God-beloved brother and fellow priest Cledonius, Gregory, greeting in the Lord. However, in the incarnation what we see is that the divine Logos (the second person of the Trinity) assumed a human body and spirit but not a human mind. Gregory of Nazianzus, Saint. If anyone should assert that He passed through the Virgin as through a channel, and was not at once divinely and humanly formed in her (divinely, because without the intervention of a man; humanly, because in accordance with the laws of gestation), he is in like manner godless. Gregory of Nazianzus 9 May d. 390 Bishop and Theologian f Studied at Athens with Basil and Julian f Friend but not relative of other Cappadocians f Brilliant rhetorician and orator; difficult, reclusive personality f Bishop of Sasima, then [Nicene] Bp. Nay; He will come with His body— so I have learned— such as He was seen by His Disciples in the Mount, or as he showed Himself for a moment, when his Godhead overpowered the carnality. Translated by Charles Gordon Browne and James Edward Swallow. Anti-Manichaan writers 268 § 66. For how shall one thing contain two completenesses, either the house, the sunbeam and the sun, or the earth, the moisture and the river? Fill in the below and we will keep you informed, We are happy to answer your questions and to consider all constructive suggestions regarding the website. The most grievous part of it is not (though this too is shocking) that the men instil their own heresy into simpler souls by means of those who are worse; but that they also tell lies about us and say that we share their opinions and sentiments; thus baiting their hooks, and by this cloak villainously fulfilling their will, and making our simplicity, which looked upon them as brothers and not as foes, into a support of their wickedness. John 1.1-14). The Letter Collection of Gregory of Nazianzus was published in Late Antique Letter Collections on page 81. Let them not, then, begrudge us our complete salvation, or clothe the Saviour only with bones and nerves and the portraiture of humanity. For how shall one thing contain two completenesses, either the house, the sunbeam and the sun, or the earth, the moisture and the river? But they are deceived by the latter, and, therefore, they run to the flesh, because they do not know the custom of Scripture. Five. For God and Man are two natures, as also soul and body are; but there are not two Sons or two Gods. CXXVI. (To help fight spam, this address might change occasionally.) Forasmuch as many persons have come to your Reverence seeking confirmation of their faith, and therefore you have affectionately asked me to put forth a brief definition and rule of my opinion, I therefore write to your Reverence, what indeed you knew before, that I never have and never can honour anything above the Nicene Faith, that of the Holy Fathers who met there to destroy the Arian heresy; but am, and by God's help ever will be, of that faith; completing in detail that which was incompletely said by them concerning the Holy Ghost; for that question had not then been mooted, namely, that we are to believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are of one Godhead, thus confessing the Spirit also to be God. If anyone does not believe that Holy Mary is the Mother of God, he is severed from the Godhead. But it is not safe to make any innovation before judgment is given, especially in a matter of such importance, and connected with so great issues. You, my good sir, dishonour my mind (you a Sarcolater, if I am an Anthropolater ) that you may tie God down to the Flesh, since He cannot be otherwise tied; and therefore you take away the wall of partition. If He assumed the worse that He might sanctify it by His incarnation, may He not assume the better that it may be sanctified by His becoming Man? Contact information. Where in that case were His being handled after the Resurrection, or His being seen hereafter by them that pierced Him, for Godhead is in its nature invisible. For we do not sever the Man from the Godhead, but we lay down as a dogma the Unity and Identity of Person, Who of old was not Man but God, and the Only Son before all ages, unmingled with body or anything corporeal; but Who in these last days has assumed Manhood also for our salvation; passible in His Flesh, impassible in His Godhead; circumscript in the body, uncircumscript in the Spirit; at once earthly and heavenly, tangible and intangible, comprehensible and incomprehensible; that by One and the Same Person, Who was perfect Man and also God, the entire humanity fallen through sin might be created anew. The light is nothing compared with the sun, nor a little damp compared with a river, that we must first do away with the lesser, and take the light from a house, or the moisture from the earth, to enable it to contain the greater and more perfect. But what is my theory, who am but an ignorant man, and no Philosopher. THE TYNDALE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE LECTURE, 1987 GREGORY NAZIANZEN'S USE OF SCRIPTURE IN DEFENCE OF THE DEITY OF THE SPIRIT T. A. Noble Gregory Nazianzen's defence of the deity of the Spirit was most fully expressed in two orations which he gave in Constantinople during his brief sojourn there from AD 379 to AD And I say different Elements, because it is the reverse of what is the case in the Trinity; for There we acknowledge different Persons so as not to confound the persons; but not different Elements, for the Three are One and the same in Godhead. We will teach them this also. Gregory of Nazianzus. As Gregory of Nazianzus stated, “That which is not assumed is not healed.” 2 If Christ was not human in the same way we are human, then we remain in bondage to our sins. He is widely considered the most accomplished rhetorical stylist of … The representatives of Egyptian Monachism 264 § 65. (Buffalo, NY: Christian Literature Publishing Co., 1894.) GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS (c. 329 – c. 391) was one of the Cappadocian fathers, known to Christian tradition as "the Theologian" by virtue of his rhetorical erudition and the consummate skill with which he combated the perceived heresies of those who in any way detracted from or denied the validity of the established orthodoxy of his day. Mind is mingled with mind, as nearer and more closely related, and through it with flesh, being a Mediator between God and carnality. If, however, they rely on the passage, The Word was made Flesh and dwelt among us, and because of this erase the noblest part of Man (as cobblers do the thicker part of skins) that they may join together God and Flesh, it is time for them to say that God is God only of flesh, and not of souls, because it is written, As You have given Him power over all Flesh, and Unto You shall all Flesh come; and Let all Flesh bless His holy Name, meaning every Man. Moreover, in no other way was it possible for the Love of God toward us to be manifested than by making mention of our flesh, and that for our sake He descended even to our lower part. If any introduce the notion of Two Sons, one of God the Father, the other of the Mother, and discredits the Unity and Identity, may he lose his part in the adoption promised to those who believe aright. Section 101 For one in high estate, if he fail to make further progress and to disseminate virtue still more widely, and contents himself with slight results, incurs punishment, as having spent a great light upon the illumination of a little house, or girt round the limbs of a boy the full armor of a man. For if our present assailants had any ground for condemning us in regard of the faith, it would not have been right for them, even in that case, to have ventured on such a course without giving us notice. For what the method of selection is, in accordance with which some of the events are to occur and others to be omitted, let these wise men who glory in the multitude of their books show us. Dr. Ullman, however, thinks that while S. Gregory was certainly speaking the truth in saying that he had in his hands a pamphlet by Apollinarius, yet that he, perhaps unconsciously, exaggerated the heretical character of its contents, pushing its statements to consequences which Apollinarius would have repudiated. But they are deceived by the latter, and, therefore, they run to the flesh, because they do not know the custom of Scripture. In 382 Gregory was summoned to a Synod at Constantinople… Ep. And so the passage, The Word was made Flesh, seems to me to be equivalent to that in which it is said that He was made sin, or a curse for us; not that the Lord was transformed into either of these, how could He be? Baruch 3:37 And what can anyone contend further? Or, if you like, an Angel compared with God, or a man with an Angel. For what need is there even to mention to those who know it, the fact that everywhere in Scripture he is called Man, and the Son of Man? But if anyone when we say and protest this, either from some advantage they will thus gain, or through fear of men, or monstrous littleness of mind, or through some neglect of pastors and governors, or through love of novelty and proneness to innovations, rejects us as unworthy of credit, and attaches himself to such men, and divides the noble body of the Church, he shall bear his judgment, whoever he may be, Galatians 5:10 and shall give account to God in the day of judgment. English] Christ in the Life and Teaching of Gregory of Nazianzus is the first full-length book devoted to an overview of the Christology of this fourth-century Father of the Church. Do not let the men deceive themselves and others with the assertion that the Man of the Lord, as they call Him, Who is rather our Lord and God, is without human mind. Therefore, Mind was taken upon Him. And they can surely prove it, either by the minutes of the Synod, or by Letters of Communion, for this is the regular custom of Synods. How does this touch me? 13 Gregory of Nazianzus, Letter 101, trans. Do they not know, then, that what is perfect by comparison with one thing may be imperfect by comparison with another, as a hill compared with a mountain, or a grain of mustard seed with a bean or any other of the larger seeds, although it may be called larger than any of the same kind? John 3:13 As though even before He came down He was the Son of Man, and when He came down He brought with Him that Flesh, which it appears He had in Heaven, as though it had existed before the ages, and been joined with His Essence. GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS. Here is matter for inquiry; for indeed the question is worthy of much consideration. ... No. If any assert that He was made perfect by works, or that after His Baptism, or after His Resurrection from the dead, He was counted worthy of an adoptive Sonship, like those whom the Greeks interpolate as added to the ranks of the gods, let him be anathema. Saint Gregory left Constantinople in June 381, and this Oration probably dates soon after his return to Nazianzus, probably delivered on the anniversary of Saint Basil's death. Epistle to Diognetus: chapters 5-7 Gregory of Nazianzus on The Hospital of Basil - Oration 43,63 Gregory of Nyssa - On Slavery - Expositio in Ecclesiasten - beginning of Homily IV Gregory of Nyssa - Against Usury - Oratio Contra Usurarios (excerpts) No Pagans in the Army - (from Codex Theodosianus) I at any rate, knowing better than anyone, as I did, the thoughts and the heresy of the Apollinarians, and seeing that their folly was intolerable; yet thinking that I could tame them by patience and soften them by degrees, I let my hopes make me eager to attain this object. St. Gregory of Nyssa 295 § 70. But because by taking them upon Him He took away our sins and bore our iniquities. [Theological orations. But if His Manhood is intellectual and nor without mind, let them cease to be thus really mindless. St. Cyril of Jerusalem 271 § 67. McGuckin’s Saint Gregory of Nazianzus. Later, John of Damascus would reject this view as well believing that it was impossible for God to offer Jesus to the devil. Gregory of Nazianzus, Epistle 101.4–6, ed. Let me state the greater results. But we recognize God the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost, and these not as bare titles, dividing inequalities of ranks or of power, but as there is one and the same title, so there is one nature and one substance in the Godhead. So Moses was a God to Pharaoh, Exodus 7:1 but a servant of God, Numbers 12:7 as it is written; and the stars which illumine the night are hidden by the Sun, so much that you could not even know of their existence by daylight; and a little torch brought near a great blaze is neither destroyed, nor seen, nor extinguished; but is all one blaze, the bigger one prevailing over the other. Such is their want of reason; it conflicts both with itself and with the truth to such an extent that they are neither conscious nor ashamed of it when they fall out with themselves. The eight orations, each representing a different aspect of his writing, are examined alongside a selection of his shorter poems in verse translation, letters, and a translation of Gregory's own will. But if it is serious, and not to be endured by our most august Emperors, pray punish what has been done — though more mildly than such madness merits. But even though there is no precedent for such a course, let your inimitable perfection in virtue stand up at a crisis like the present, and teach our most pious Emperor, that no gain will come from his zeal for the Church on other points if he allows such an evil to gain strength from freedom of speech for the subversion of sound faith. Instead, the divine Logos, as a divine mind, served as the mind of the incarnate Christ. We will teach them this also. Apollinarius, according to S. Gregory, declares that the Son of God was from all eternity clothed with a human body, and not from the time of His conception only by the Blessed Virgin; but that this humanity of God is without human mind, the place of which was supplied by the Godhead of the Only-begotten. They proclaim to us today a wisdom hidden ever since the time of Christ — a thing worthy of our tears. Saint Gregory was saint patron … This ransom theory of the atonement He was a man for whom S. Gregory had a very high esteem, and with whom he was upon terms of close friendship, as will be seen from other letters of Gregory to him in another division of this Selection. , I went back to the Greek text and began to revise Browne and Gregory of Nazianzus (Greek: Γρηγόριος ὁ Ναζιανζηνός Grēgorios ho Nazianzēnos; c. 329 [1] – 25 January 389 or 390 [1]), also known as Gregory the Theologian or Gregory Nazianzen, was a 4th-century Archbishop of Constantinople.He is widely considered the most accomplished rhetorical stylist of the patristic age. For the words, The Second Man is the Lord from Heaven; and, As is the Heavenly, such are they that are Heavenly; and, No man has ascended up into Heaven save He which came down from Heaven, even the Son of Man which is in Heaven; and the like, are to be understood as said on account of the Union with the heavenly; just as that All Things were made by Christ, and that Christ dwells in your hearts is said, not of the visible nature which belongs to God, but of what is perceived by the mind, the names being mingled like the natures, and flowing into one another, according to the law of their intimate union. For the words, The Second Man is the Lord from Heaven; 1 Corinthians 15:47 and, As is the Heavenly, such are they that are Heavenly; and, No man has ascended up into Heaven save He which came down from Heaven, even the Son of Man which is in Heaven; John 3:13 and the like, are to be understood as said on account of the Union with the heavenly; just as that All Things were made by Christ, John 1:3 and that Christ dwells in your hearts Ephesians 3:17 is said, not of the visible nature which belongs to God, but of what is perceived by the mind, the names being mingled like the natures, and flowing into one another, according to the law of their intimate union. Gregory of Nazianzus (329-390 CE), "the Theologian," is the premier teacher on the Holy Trinity in Eastern Christian tradition, yet for over a century historians and theologians have largely neglected his work. We have protested and continue to protest this before God  and men. Now, if they who hold such views have authority to meet, your Wisdom approved in Christ must see that, inasmuch as we do not approve their views, any permission of assembly granted to them is nothing less than a declaration that their view is thought more true than ours. And since a question has also been mooted concerning the Divine Assumption of humanity, or Incarnation, state this also clearly to all concerning me, that I join in One the Son, who was begotten of the Father, and afterward of the Virgin Mary, and that I do not call Him two Sons, but worship Him as One and the same in undivided Godhead and honour. 61. David Tbeli translated Gregory of Nazianzus' twelve works into the Georgian: ten homilies (or.or. ... is carried through in Hofer’s analysis of Epistle 101 in chapter 6. These points are made much better by St. Gregory of Nazianzus (329-390), in his famous Epistle 101, in which he scolded those who denied the reality of Christ’s human mind and human soul. This, then, would be what He saves; and I have been deceived by the Truth, and led to boast of an honour which had been bestowed upon another. For we also think we have the spirit of God, 1 Corinthians 7:40 if indeed this is a gift of the Spirit, and not a human novelty. Cristiana Sogno, Bradley K. Storin, and Edward J. Watts (Oakland: University of California Press, 2017) Gregory selected some of his previously written epistles and arranged and published them in a collection to proclaim a certain image of himself. For a bushel measure will not hold two bushels, nor will the space of one body hold two or more bodies. O monstrous absurdity! But if it is mere words, and an invention of their own, devised for the sake of appearances and to give them weight with the multitude through the credit of the persons, teach them to hold their tongues, and confute them; for we believe that such a task is well suited to your manner of life and orthodoxy. But since our faith has been proclaimed, both in writing and without writing, here and in distant parts, in times of danger and of safety, how comes it that some make such attempts, and that others keep silence? c. 1, p. 172) are laid down. "The Letter Collection of Gregory of Nazianzus," in Late Antique Letter Collections: A Critical Introduction and Reference Guide, ed. 2002 . And not only so, but they also assert, as I am told, that they have been received by the Western Synod, by which they were formerly condemned, as is well known to everyone. Judaism Ambrose and the synagogue in Callinicum - Ambrose, Letter 40 So Gregory is one who not only knew about God but also […] And now if it had been possible for me to teach you this myself, I should not have hesitated, you may be sure, even to undertake a journey beyond my strength to throw myself at the feet of your Excellency. For these men, when they are theologizing among their genuine disciples, and those who are initiated into their secrets, like the Manichæans among those whom they call the Elect, expose the full extent of their disease, and scarcely allow flesh at all to the Saviour. They ought rather to have first persuaded us, or to have been willing to be persuaded by us (if at least any account is to be taken of us as fearing God, labouring for the faith, and helping the Church), and then, if at all, to innovate; but then perhaps there would be an excuse for their outrageous conduct. The one purpose of the latter was, in Dr. Ullman's view, to safeguard the doctrine of the Unity of Christ; and he thought that the orthodox expression of Two Whole and Perfect Natures tended to a Nestorian division of the Person of Christ; and so he used language which certainly seemed to confound the natures, or at any rate to make the Incarnation imperfect, inasmuch as a Christ in Whom the human mind is absent, and its place filled up by the Godhead of the Son, cannot be said to be perfect Man. Let me state the greater results. Storin deems three intertwined aspects—or ‘colors’—of self-presentation especially important to Gregory: eloquence, philosophy, and his friendship with the late Basil of Caesarea (p. 26). Thus, in an ordinary human person, there would be these three components. choresis was first used by Gregory Nazianzen in the fourth century ad,inhisEpistle 101 and elsewhere, ... 5 Gregory, Epistle 101,inPatrologia Graeca 37.181C, cited in Otto, ‘The use and abuse of perichoresis, p. 368. This, then, is sufficient to say at the present time for the sake of clearness and of being understood by the many. An English translation of this text, placed alongside the Greek text, can be found on the subscription version of the site. Origen and Gregory of Nyssa were the two major early developers of this perspec-tive. For nature does not admit of two contrary doctrines on the same subject being both true. This has now been demonstrated, whether they like it or no, by, to use their own expression, geometrical and necessary proofs. But you are acting as if, when a man's eye had been injured and his foot had been injured in consequence, you were to attend to the foot and leave the eye uncared for; or as if, when a painter had drawn something badly, you were to alter the picture, but to pass over the artist as if he had succeeded. For it is not laid by in the sun, according to the babble of the Manichæans, that it should be honoured by a dishonour; nor was it poured forth into the air and dissolved, as is the nature of a voice or the flow of an odour, or the course of a lightning flash that never stands. For if they are permitted to teach their view as godly men, and with all confidence to preach their doctrine, it is manifest that the doctrine of the Church has been condemned, as though the truth were on their side. He is widely considered the most accomplished rhetorical stylist of the patristic age. God forbid! 1 A clever hit of Gregory's, the sharpest in the whole invective. For gentleness does not put bad men out of countenance. 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, 12, 24, 28, 34, 36), an epistle (Epist.101), and ''the Teaching". But there is a matter which is graver than these, a special point which it is necessary that I should not pass over. For if this be done, what hinders Christ also being born again to set them aside, and again being betrayed by Judas, and crucified and buried, and rising again, that all may be fulfilled in the same order, like the Greek system of cycles, in which the same revolutions of the stars bring round the same events? Against Christopher Beeley (Gregory of Nazianzus on the Trinity and the Knowledge of God [New York: Oxford University Press, 2008], pp. GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS’S RECEPTION OF ORIGEN: THE HISTORY, STRUCTURE, AND SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PHILOCALIA OF ORIGEN by Joey Cochran Th.M. If this is to be tolerated, your Excellency will tolerate it, and I too will bear it, as I have often before. But, it may be said, our mind is subject to condemnation. Edited by Philip Schaff and Henry Wace. If anyone has put his trust in Him as a Man without a human mind, he is really bereft of mind, and quite unworthy of salvation. Or, again, they must suppose that our fathers went down into Egypt without bodies and invisible, and that only the Soul of Joseph was imprisoned by Pharaoh, because it is written, They went down into Egypt with threescore and fifteen Souls, and The iron entered into his Soul, a thing which could not be bound.
