Book chapter

Hierarchies of Beings in the Patristic Thought. Gregory of Nyssa and Dionysius the Areopagite

P. 71-88.

The purpose of this chapter is to trace how the topic of the hierarchy of natural beings was dealt with in the Patristic thought. This first part of the study will review the doctrine of natural beings in Gregory of Nyssa. Then we will move on to Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite whose understanding of hierarchy is substantially different than that of Gregory of Nyssa.
