In this history of the notion of divine infinity, Sweeney (philosophy, Loyola U.) offers an interpretation of Gregory of Nyssa that illumines other thinkers who, like Gregory, predicate the infinity of God by locating him above place, time, and anything created. He also discusses such thinkers as Plato, Plotinus, Proclus, Richard Fishacre, and John Damascene, including numerous selections from their writings. Name index only.
