Review Quotes

"The editor Hubertus Drobner has done a fine job in putting this volume together. [...] The actual Greek text and critical apparatus of Gregory’s In Hexaemeron are clearly the most useful and most important part of this book. The critical text is what makes this volume so valuable to the patristic scholar or to any scholar concerned with the history of biblical interpretation in the early Christian centuries. [...] This critical edition of Gregory of Nyssa’s In Hexaemeron will be an indispensable reference for any scholar interested in Gregory of Nyssa. It will also prove valuable for scholars who are interested in patristic exegesis and the history of biblical interpretation more generally speaking and who have competence reading Greek patristic literature." – Jeffrey L. Morrow, in: RBL, 9/2010 "Die kritische Edition dieses wichtigen Gregortraktates steht am Ende einer mehr als fünfzig Jahre umfassenden Editionsarbeit. Der founding father der Brillschen Augabe von Gregors Werken, Werner Jaeger (1961), hat diese Arbeit begonnen mit der Sammlung der Handschriften und der Kollation einers der ältesten Codices. Das Material ist durch die Hände vieler Mitarbeiter gegangen und schließlich zu Hubertus Drobner gelangt. Ihm ist es gelungen, diese rudis indigesta moles zu bewältigen. [...] Es ist erfreulich, daß dieser durchaus schwierige Text endlich in den Gregorii Nysseni Opera erschienen ist. Dem Herausgeber gebührt für seine Leistung großer Dank." – J.C.M. van Winden, in: Vig Chri 64 (2010)
