Cappadocian Fathers

The Cappadocian Fathers consist of Basil the Great, his younger brother Gregory of Nyssa, and Gregory of Nazianzus (also called "Gregory the Theologian"). Basil became bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia in 370; Gregory of Nyssa, the most philosophical of the three, was appointed bishop of Nyssa in 372; Gregory of Nazianzus, the theologian, was made bishop of Constantinople in 381.
