The Fathers Speak: St Basil the Great, St Gregory of Nazianzus, St Gregory of Nyssa

   
Selected letters and life-records translated from the Greek and introduced by Georges A. Barrois
with a Foreword by John Meyendorff

“I am not writing a book about the ‘Three Hierarchs,’ Saint Basil, Saint Gegory of Nazianzus, and Saint Gregory of Nyssa. I prefer to let them speak for themselves in the letters which they wrote to each other or to some of their contemporaries, and which let us enter into their intimacy. My task has been to choose those pieces that best reveal the secret of their personality.”
