SAINT GREGORY OF NYSSA

Saint Gregory of Nyysa Cappadocia

Gregory (340 - 394) was the brother of Basil the Great and the bishop of Nyssa.

Little is known about his life. In 371 he was consecrated bishops who were traveling through the region to attend the Council of Nicaea (325).

After a few years, the father became the first Bishop of Nyssa.

Gregory was one of the key figures at the First Council of Constantinople (381) and known as an eloquent preacher on state occasions in the capital.

He was, however, more of a scholar than a man of action.

Some of his works have survived.
