Against the background of the previous three chapters, this chapter offers a new reading of the fundamental structures of the Trinitarian theology of Gregory of Nyssa. Considers the argument of his Ad Ablabium, showing how it reveals a concern to express God’s unitary power rather than any early ‘social’ analogy for the Trinity. This concern is expressed in the context of the anthropological and epistemological dynamics discussed in Chs 11–13 and, alongside, an insistence on the irreducibility of the three persons.

Keywords:   epistemology, Gregory of Nyssa, person, social analogy, theology, Trinity
