From September 17 to 20, 2014 (Aula Álvaro del Portillo) the XIII International Colloquium on Gregory of Nyssa will be held, on the iniziative of the School of Theology. This edition will be focused on the exegetical work In Canticum canticorum. 

This work shows one of the most distinguished characteristics of Gregory's thought, i.e. the deep interconnection between thought and spiritual life. This suggests a rich and valuable line of investigation for contemporary research.

The schedule of the Colloquium consists of lectures, workshops and short papers.
