Summary/Abstract: In this research, the author tries to examine the role of Aristotle's Organon in the theological teachings of the Cappadocian Fathers. The aim of this paper is to show that the Cappadocian Fathers used Aristotle's notions of the first and second substance, in order to defend the original teachings of the church from the opposit teachings that were considered heretical. Even though Cappadocian theologians use philosophical notions in their work, this does not mean that they alienate from the original Christian teaching.
