Saint Basil was born in Caesarea, one of 10 children of a saintly family. He was a brilliant student, orator, and lawyer before becoming a monk and writing the rule for Eastern monasticism. He also was a companion of St. Gregory Nazianzen. Basil is responsible for the victory of the Nicene orthodoxy over Arianism, which was denounced at the Council of Constantinople. His zeal for justice and orthodoxy was shown by his fight against simony, clerical abuse, and evil where he saw it. He was an accomplished statesman with great personal holiness. He’s represented carrying a book referring to his influential writings.
