    Time, the Heaven of Heavens, and Memory in Augustine’s Confessions.Donald L. Ross - 1991 - Augustinian Studies 22:191-205.
    Five interpretations of Augustine's theory of time in Confessions XI are discussed. A distinction is made between the dimensionality, the sequentiality, and the unidirectionality of time; and various arguments are given for the thesis that Augustine regarded time as subjective in only the second and third senses.

  3. Gregory of Nyssa.Donald L. Ross - 2006 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    This is a general account of the Cappadocian Christian Father Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335 - c. 395 CE) as a philosopher. The article is divided into a discussion of his life and his views on God, the world, humanity, history, knowledge, and virtue. A common thread, which would later be systematized in the Palamite essence-energies distinction, is traced in all these topics. Of particular interest to philosophers are comparisons with John Locke and Immanuel Kant.
