Gregory of Nazianzus

Gregory of Nazianzus (c. 330-390)

“We have the beard, the humble mien, the bowed head, the subdued voice, the contrived sincerity, the measured gait–everything that goes with wisdom indeed, except a wise mind.”

  • From Saint Gregory of Nazianzus: Three Poems (autobiographical poems written by Gregory about his experiences as a clergyman) translated by Denis Molaise Meechan (Catholic University of America Press, 1987).
