[Gregory,] bishop of Nyssa,[1] brother of Basil of Caesarea,[2] was also himself a most famous man; though well versed in all aspects of culture he gained especially the attachment of those who take delight in eloquence. He was indeed of high repute in this art and brilliant among those who practiced it in those days. This man also composed a fine Oration against Eunomius, [3] a marvellous book On the Making of Man as well as a host of diverse homilies: On the Song of Songs and On Ecclesiastes; for his sister Macrina he also composed a long and brilliant exposition on the soul. But he has written many things, including a wondrous oration of praise for Stephen, the first of the martyrs. And he composed a Life of Gregory who became famous for miracles.[4]
Greek Original:
Γρηγόριος, Νύσσης ἐπίσκοπος, ἀδελφὸς Βασιλείου τοῦ Καισαρέως, ἀνὴρ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐλλογιμώτατος καὶ πάσης ὑπάρχων παιδείας ἀνάπλεως, προσκείμενος δὲ μᾶλλον τοῖς τῇ ῥητορικῇ χαίρουσι. καὶ γοῦν εὐδόκιμος ἐν ταύτῃ γεγένηται καὶ λαμπρὸς εἴ τις ἄλλος τῶν πάλαι ταύτῃ γεγενημένων. οὗτος συνέταξε κατ' Εὐνομίου λόγον ἐξαίρετον καὶ τεῦχος θαυμάσιον εἰς τὴν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου κατασκευήν, ἄλλας τε πυκνὰς καὶ συνεχεῖς ὁμιλίας. Εἴς τε τὰ Ἄισματα τῶν ᾀσμάτων καὶ Εἰς τὸν Ἐκκλησιαστὴν, καὶ πρὸς τὴν ἀδελφὴν Μακρίναν μακρόν τινα καὶ περικαλλῆ περὶ ψυχῆς συνέθηκε λόγον. ἄλλα τε πολλὰ γεγραφήκει καὶ τὸν πολυθαύμαστον ἔπαινον τοῦ πρώτου τῶν μαρτύρων Στεφάνου. καὶ Βίον δὲ συνέταξε Γρηγορίου τοῦ ἐν θαύμασι διαλάμψαντος.
