For our next session we will continue our reading of Deirdre Carabine's work "The Unknown God - Negative Theology in the Platonic Tradition, Plato to Eriugena". For this session we will be reading chapters 7, 8 and 9, on Philo of Alexandria, Gregory of Nyssa and Augustine. This takes us to the biblical tradition side of negative theology and the ways the previous Platonic tradition overlap with and influence that tradition.
There is an amazon link to the work below.
Besides continuity with our previous subject, this work may also address participant questions during our last topic about which parts of the Platonic tradition directly influenced traditional Christianity, rather than the Gnostics.

We will spend 4 sessions overall on Deirdre's work, with our next being the third of the 4.
