Die Basilius-übersetzung Des Georg Von Trapezunt (Hardcover) (Christina Abenstein)
about this item
The doctrinal writings of St. Basil of Caesarea were of key importance at the 1438–9 Ecumenical Council of Ferrara-Florence. A short time later, Bessarion commissioned rhetoric professor George of Trebizond to translate the texts as a gift to Pope Eugenius IV. In addition to the three books Contra Eunomium and the book De spiritu sancto, the work includes the pseudo-Basilian books IV and V Contra Eunomium and the short piece De spiritu.
