Über diesen Titel:
Klappentext: The Council of Nicaea in 325 AD marked the beginning of a new era in Christianity. For the first time, doctrines were organized into a single creed. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers did most of their writing during and after this important event in Church history. This second series from the Nicene and Post-Nicene era contains a variety of works from a number of important writers.
In Volume VIII of the 14-volume collected writings of the Nicenes and Post-Nicenes (first published between 1890 and 1900), readers will find the most important writings from Saint Basil, a bishop of Caesarea, who fought against the heresy of Arianism and the Macedonian heresy, which denied the divinity of the Holy Ghost. Most of what is known about the Macedonian heretics comes from the writings of Saint Basil and Athanasius. The first book in this volume, The Book of Saint Basil on the Spirit, is a refutation of Arian and semi-Arian claims about the Trinity.
Also found in this book are the Hexaemeron, Basil's sermons on cosmology, and his letters, which provide readers with a sense of Basil as a person.
Anyone interested in learning about the early disagreements among Christians over doctrine will find this book a useful primary source.
