Sandra Leuenberger-Wenger examines the significance of the concept of identity for the ethical reflections of Gregory of Nyssa.
In this work, the author examines the significance of the concept of identity for the ethical reflections of Gregory of Nyssa. Depending on the audience for which his message was intended, Gregory approached the issue of a lifestyle in accordance with the principles of Christianity in various ways. Whereas the vast majority of his community members had to be exhorted to lead a good and decent Christian life, the literate audience who read Gregory's texts or asked him what a good and virtuous Christian life was had already thought about this subject and had to be shown the superiority of the Christian way of life in comparison to other philosophical concepts.
