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).
