SVS Press Popular Patristics Series #42
On the Holy Spirit is a classic expression of the Church’s faith in the Spirit and a lasting testimony to St Basil’s Christian erudition. In the words of St Gregory the Theologian, St Basil’s treatise was “written by a pen borrowed from the Spirit’s store.”
This work sets forth the distinction of the divine Persons, and their perpetual communion and conjunction. It talks also about the nature of theological language, and the theological significance of the Church’s tradition of worship and proclamation. Although the book was written for St Basil’s fourth century contemporaries, its message is valid for all ages. Translated by Stephen M. Hildebrand.
