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.
