Publisher's Summary

St. Gregory of Nyssa (AD 335 - 395), the great theologian and bishop of Nyssa, turned his considerable skill to finishing the work that his brother St. Basil the Great had started on the creation of the world (the Hexaemeron). The result is this book, which examines how humans are formed as a "mean between the divine and brute beasts". 

The book is made up of 30 chapters and covers everything from "why human beings appeared last, after the rest of creation" to "the rationale of sleep, of yawning, and of dreams".

A fascinating listen from one of the greatest minds of the early church.
