(p.1) Introduction
Body and Desire

Raphael A. Cadenhead

University of California Press

The introduction highlights significant lacunae in the reception history of Gregory’s thought and provides a number of terminological caveats to eschew potential anachronism when discussing his theorization of ascetical practice. It lays out the rationale for studying Gregory’s works in chronological order and provides a cursory overview of the findings of each phase in Gregory’s literary career. The introduction also offers a brief genealogy of Western twentieth-century scholarship on Gregory to understand why his thought was brought into counterpoint with contemporary discussions on gender and sexuality.

Keywords:   gender, sexuality, diachronic methodology, ressourcement, nouvelle théologie, Jean Daniélou
