Gregory of Nyssa and the Concept of Divine Persons (American Academy of Religion Academy Series)
Gregory of Nyssa and the Concept of Divine Persons (American Academy of Religion Academy Series)
The concept of personhood is central to a wide range of contemporary issues, ranging from reproductive rights to the death penalty and euthanasia. We may think that the concept of person is a modern development. In fact, however, this idea does not originate with our discovery of human rights, consciousness, and individuality.
In this study Lucian Turcescu shows that the fourth-century theologian Gregory of Nyssa developed a very sophisticated concept of the person in the context of his attempts to clarify the paradox of the Trinity-a single God comprising three distinct persons. Turcescu offers the first in-depth analysis of Gregory’s writings about the divine persons. He shows that Gregory understood personhood as characterized by uniqueness, relationality, and freedom. He reasoned that the three persons of the Trinity have distinctive properties that make them individuals, that is, capable of being enumerated and circumscribed. But this idea of individuation, inherited from the neo-Platonists, falls short of expressing a clear notion of personal uniqueness. By itself it would suggest that a person is merely a collection of properties. Gregory’s great contribution was to perceive the importance of relationality to personhood. The three divine persons know and love each other, are in communion with each other, and freely act together in their common will. This understanding, argues Turcescu, adds up to a concept of personal uniqueness much like our modern one.
Turcescu’s work not only contributes to our knowledge of the history of Trinitarian theology but can be helpful to theologians who are dealing with issues in contemporary ethics.

Lost in Snow!

Lost in Snow!
Several of you have asked for more photos of Edinburgh engulfed in blizzards and white-out conditions so here’s another from my week when I thought about building a snowman, only to pinch myself and realise – I was the snowman!

926 is seen on a route-diverted 23 Firhill to Trinity gingerly slipping down the Mound and how we could have done with that infamous electric blanket today I hear you cry!

In a picture postcard it’s a glorious scene and behold the National Gallery, which stands behind
the Royal Scottish Academy, with its magnificent Doric columns.

Also observe these Edinburgh ‘white-bulbed’ lanterns, now quite common in the New Town and I’m handing over to Steven Oliver, who runs the Edinburgh Streetlights Yahoogroup and is just the most marvellous intellectual on all matters to do with street-lighting.
SO: "These are called "Charlotte" lanterns, named after Charlotte Square. The first examples of these made their debut on the Mound and in Charlotte Square around 1959, with other areas such as Ann Street following later. I can remember Royal Circus and India Street going over to these lanterns in the mid to late eighties".

Thanks Steven and I recall these Mound lanterns having sodium vertical strips until fairly recently? They looked a bit odd as the ‘bulb’ could barely be contained within the round globes. The lovely thing about the lanterns was also they have a small, inner shade to contain the bulb itself.

A concise system of logics, in question and answer, by William Best, A.B. Trinity-College, Dublin, now master of a classical academy in New-York. (Copy right secured according to law).
The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic — a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.
