Cappadocian collecting
« on: September 17, 2016, 12:45:35 PM »
Okay, folks, I am hoping we can put our heads together and come up with as exhaustive a list as possible of Cappadocian Fathers in English. Also, in Greek editions. (French -- no thanks. :) )

Paulist Press has two volumes of Gregory of Nyssa. SVS has some tract-length translations of some of St. Basil. The Loeb Classical Library has a little, including Gregory Naziansus's poems. I know there is no definitive collection of their works in English, and some remains untranslated, so I was hoping for a joint effort to put together a list of our own.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

I know you have looked at/arrested all the usual suspects which I will list here as a public service:

If you understand Greek (I do not) there are links to Greek Orthodox bookstores (some are nonfunctional):
