Basil, Agnes Clare Way


The letters of St. Basil, 300 and sixty-eight in quantity, which include the main bright and such a lot own component of his works, supply us, maybe, the clearest perception into the wealth of his wealthy and sundry genius. They have been written in the years from 357, almost immediately earlier than his retreat to the Pontus, till his demise in 378, a interval of significant unrest and persecution of the orthodox Catholic Church within the East.
