This chapter presents an overview of the four different interpretations of the doctrine of the Trinity discussed in the two succeeding chapters included in Part I of this book. All of them use Gregory of Nyssa's writings; some focus on him in more detail than others. The authors have been divided into two pairs, each highlighting a particular interpretation of Gregory's work, that is, Gregory as philosopher and Gregory as a (proto-) ‘social Trinitarian’.

Keywords:   Gregory of Nyssa, Trinity, Cappadocian settlement, Gregory as philosopher, social Trinitarian
