St. Gregory of Nyssa: “Making an idol of God”

St. Gregory of Nyssa (c. AD 335 – 395) – Along with his older brother, Basil of Caesarea, and friend, Gregory of Nazianzus, Nyssen was one the three great Cappadocian Fathers of the 4th century.

“…every concept formed by our understanding which attempts to attain and to hem in the divine nature serves only to make an idol of God, not to make God known”.
