tradition matches that of St. Benedict to those of the West.
He became Bishop of Caesarea and was a stalwart defender of the
doctrine of the Incarnation of Christ, defending the Church from the
Arian heresy which denied Christ's divinity. He also contributed to the
doctrine of the Trinity.
He had great skills as a theologian, orator and liturgist and his
pastoral care of his flock inspired him to build a hospital known as a
great wonder of the world at the time. He died c. 379 and is named as a
Doctor of he Church. Known as one of the Cappadocian Fathers with SS.
Gregory Nazianzen and Gregory of Nyssa (Basil's brother).
