How to order?
The remaining treatises of Basil - ascetic, dogmatic and exegetic -
are given full coverage in the manner and style of the previous
volumes. The bulk is taken up by the Ascetica. Twelve recensions of
the Great Asketikon are identified, seven in Greek and five more in
one of the nine languages of some of which the Greek original is no
longer extant. Studied are also the versions into Armenian, Arabic,
Coptic, Georgian, Latin, Old Slavonic and Syriac. Reconstituted for
the first time ever is the complete Asketikon of Basil or Asketikon
B made up of 370 erotapokriseis. The reconstituted Asketikon
attests to the existence of authentic pieces eventually discarded
or replaced by Basil himself because of changed opinion (on his
part) or changed circumstances (provinces of Pontos, instead of
Cappadocia, or vice versa). In addition the three Books against
Eunomios, the treatise on the Holy Spirit to Amphilochios and the
remaining works ascribed to Basil are treated.
