(p.154) 6 Christ Speaking Himself:
Gregory of Nyssa and the Grasp of Faith

Martin Laird (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Discusses an over-looked dimension of Gregory’s apophaticism. By virtue of apophatic union with the Word, the soul, while remaining unknowing, paradoxically takes on the qualities of the Word. The Word speaks (logophasis) in the deeds and discourse of Paul, Peter, Thekla, andthe bride.

Keywords:   bride, incence, logophasis, odour of Christ, Paul, perfume
