The moving story of how a young woman transformed her entire family and home into inhabitants of an earthly Paradise.

The Life of Saint Makrina is Saint Gregory of Nyssa's beautiful and endearing portrait of his older sister who lived ascetically on their family on their estate. It was Saint Makrina's example and teaching that let her brother Saint Basil the Great to renounce a promising career and embrace the ascetic life. On Virginity is Saint Gregory's earliest work, in which he extols virginity as a means of attaining to the only true object of desire.
