About the Author

Stephen M. Hildebrand is Professor of Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, USA.


"In this volume Stephen Hildebrand gives a succinct yet insightful overview of the life and thought of Basil of Caesarea, informed by the latest scholarship, and offers a well-chosen selection of texts drawn from various genres and written for various purposes that illuminate different facets of the Cappadocian bishop's activities and theology. Basil is presented as a complex figure who pioneered new Christian paths as a churchman, preacher, theologian, and ascetic while at the same time being deeply embedded in late-ancient Roman society. This book will prepare readers to delve into the broad secondary literature on this Cappadocian Father, and more importantly to read extensively the writings of St. Basil the Great himself."Mark DelCogliano, University of St. Thomas, USA
