I) Gregory of Nyssa, (ii) Meister Eckhart, (iii) Hildegard von Bingen or (iv) John of the Cross).

In accordance with the parameters established in the guidelines, in concert with any self-designed research parameters you supply for yourself, please provide a research paper consistent with these parameters.

The paper must be at least EIGHT (8) pages in length, closely following the (aforementioned) research parameters (for example, at most and certainly no less than one-third of the paper should be devoted to the biographical and socio-cultural background of the subject of your paper -which must be either (i) Gregory of Nyssa, (ii) Meister Eckhart, (iii) Hildegard von Bingen or (iv) John of the Cross). Note: word-count here is not as important as page count.

The (typographical) formatting of the paper must be consistent with the standard formatting for all university-level papers, that is: Times New Roman (or similar) font at 12 pt., no more than double-spacing, with one-inch wide margins from the edges at every side of the physical page itself. Almost all word-processing programs come pre-formatted with such settings -they are usually the default-setting, in fact.
