Gregory of Nyssa’s De hominis opificio is a key text for the understanding of Eastern Christian anthropology. In the fourteenth century a Serb translated the 31 chapters of this opus from the Greek. The present volume contains a critical edition of the Slavonic text together with the Greek original and an extensive commentary in which text-critical, linguistic and translation-related issues are examined.
