This icon of Gregory of Nyssa was created by an anonymous Russian iconographer in the mid to late 1980's. It was brought to St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, MA, by a retreatant. Used with permission.

These translations (some with introductions) are by Richard McCambly, a Cistercian monk of St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts. He has published translations of many of Gregory's works, including the Song of Songs Commentary and the Commentary on The Inscriptions of The Psalms, both of which are now available on this CD. Other translations by Bro. McCambly have appeared in scholarly journals.
