1 Response to St Gregory of Nyssa and Universalism

  1. Does DBH approve of this music behind him? Reminds me of the manipulative music they play at the end of Evangelical services when they want you to come forward. Not really a fan.

    I’m quite pleased to hear him endorse the idea that Basil probably wasn’t the author of that condemnation in the regulae. This is Hart’s strongest endorsement of Ramelli’s position on this issue that I’ve seen. That Basil was a universalist seems quite plausible to me, even if his answer on the devil’s redemption (“perhaps not” in his commentary on Isaiah) is not as optimistic as his brother’s. That sounds like a more reasonable disagreement between two brothers that dearly loved and respected each other. “All humans will be saved, but we can agree to disagree on the devil.”
