Author : Gregory of Nazianzus, Carolinne White
"""Description:The autobiographical poems of Gregory of Nazianzus, fourth-century Father of the Greek Church, are remarkable not only for a highly individual picture of the Byzantine world but also for moments that are intimate, passionate and moving. This book contains Greek text and facing English translation of a selection from his one hundred or so surviving poems. Gregory is best known for the five orations he gave in Constantinople. Except for the poem ""De Vita Sua,"" his work can only be read in a nineteenth-century edition and has never before been translated into English."""
