Gregory Nazianzus’ Oration on Pentecost

A preliminary English translation of Gregory of Nazianzus’ On Pentecost 41:15-16.

It is found at the following link: Gregory’s Oration on Pentecost: A translation from 41.15-16.

This translation was prepared and upkept by Alex Poulos, who has worked very hard and spent many hours tracking down various manuscripts on the subject from the various Greek, Latin and Syriac source texts. He has also performed an in-depth transcription, translation, and comparative analysis of all the texts he has worked with.

Mr. Poulos’ contribution has helped the literary and textual analysis of Gregory’s text go to a much deeper level. This will be reflected in the next round of articles on this subject.
