The Life of Saint Macrina / Edition 1

Saint Macrina (327 - 370) was a major guiding force in the early development of monasticism and it was through her example that her brother, Saint Basil the Great, was inspired to establish one of the first monastic communities. This life, written by her other famous brother, Saint Gregory of Nyssa, is one of the masterpieces of Christian literature.

About the Author

Saint Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa (c. 330 - 395), theologian, philosopher, and orator, was the last of the great Cappadocian fathers and an ardent supporter of Christian orthodoxy. The profundity and richness of his thought are revealed in his many doctrinal, exegetical, polemical, and ascetical treatises.
