QuotationI wish I could give you some information on St. Bernard in his relation to the Greek Fathers. I have non of my own; the topic interests me but I have barely begun to do anything about it, since I know the Greek Fathers so poorly. However, I can tell you this much: in [Jean] Daniélou's Platonisme et T.M. on pages 7 and 211 there are reverences to St. Bernard's dependence (?) on St. Gregory of Nyssa.
