In recent years, the writings of Gregory of Nyssa have been an increasingly popular source for theologians, philosophers, historians, and literary theorists alike. But what arises from these readings is a bewildering range of interpretations: Gregory emerges variously as a bastion of orthodoxy, a suspect neoplatonist, a mystic, a philosopher, an apologist for monasticism, an urbane married man, a misogynist, and an advocate of complete human equality.
