In the final third of the fourth century the three great Cappadocian Fathers were at the centre of a creative encounter between the Christian community and the classical heritage of late antiquity. Their leader was St Basil, well complemented by his friend St Gregory of Nazianzus, and his brother St Gregory of Nyssa. This book introduces the reader to their lives and writing and shows their connection with the Greco-Roman culture of the age.
