The seven works in this volume (some translated for the first time) explore the great human mystery of death and the promise of eternal life. They present—along with On the Soul and the Resurrection (PPS 12)—a vision that is consistent, philosophically profound, and characteristic of Gregory’s wider theology. The first three works (On the Dead, On Infants Taken Away before Their Time, and On the “Final Subjection” of Christ) might be termed thematic essays; the fourth is a sermon celebrating Christ’s resurrection (On the Holy Pascha); and the remaining three are funeral homilies given for prominent people in Constantinople (Meletius, Pulcheria, and Flaccilla). This volume includes the critical Greek text.

Saint Gregory of Nyssa (c. A.D. 335–after 384) was bishop of Nyssa and a prominent theologian of the
fourth century.
