Explaining the Cosmos analyses the philosophical and theological writings relating to the creation and eternity of the world of three Gazan thinkers, Aeneas, Zacharias and Procopius. It sheds light on Neoplatonic and Christian debates, and maps distinctive cultural characteristics of Gaza, including its schools and monasteries, in Late Antiquity.
