(p.95) 6 The Cappadocians
Christian Theologies of Salvation

NYU Press

This chapter examines the theologies of salvation of the Cappadocian Fathers—Basil of Caesarea, his younger brother Gregory of Nyssa, and their friend Gregory of Nazianzus. The theology of the Cappadocians, though with disagreements among the members at points, is relatively unified under the ideas of the believer’s salvation being collective, that it is our nature that is saved.

Keywords:   salvation, Cappadocians, Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa, Gregory of Nazianzus
