Riassunto: Excerpt from Lives of the Fathers, Vol. 2: Sketches of Church History in Biography

Basil in the East and Ambrose in the West were pre-eminently the great bishops.

Basil was born in Cappadocia, and, like his illustrious friend Gregory of Nazianzus, was far from satisfied with most of his countrymen. He describes them as timid and sluggish, and speaks of the severity of climate and heavy snowfalls, which kept them in their houses for months at a time. Libanius says that they breathe of and snow, and say to every one "I adore you."

Yet there must have been homes among the Christians of Cappadocia which bloomed with every virtue. Such was the home of Gregory the elder, Bishop of Nazianzus, in which "the theologian" and his brother Caesarius grew up under the holy care of their mother Nonna. Such, in a still more striking measure, was the home of Basil, which in three generations produced three saints among its daughters, and in one generation three bishops and three saints - Basil, Gregory of Nyssa, and Peter of Sebaste - among its sons.

The family had produced not saints only but martyrs, and regarded this fact as a far higher distinction than that conferred upon it by rank and wealth. The elder Macrina, the paternal grandmother of Basil, was a Christian, as was also her husband. In the persecution of Galerius and Maximin they had been compelled to fly for safety into the wild woods of Pontus, and there for seven years they had maintained a scanty and perilous existence.

Their son Basil the elder became a famous teacher of rhetoric in Neocaesarea. He was wealthy, and possessed estates in Pontus, Cappadocia, and Lesser Armenia. He married Emmelia, who, as well as her mother-in-law and her daughter Macrina the younger, has received the honour of canonisation. She was celebrated for her beauty, and was sought in marriage by many suitors, of whom she chose Basil as the most worthy.
