Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VII:
Select Letters of Saint Gregory Nazianzen.: To Eusebius, Archbishop of Cæsarea.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Ep. XVII.  To Eusebius, Archbishop of Cæsarea.

I did not write in an insolent spirit, as you complain of my letter, but rather in a spiritual and philosophical one, and as was fitting, unless this too wrongs “your most eloquent Gregory.”  For though you are my Superior in rank, yet you will grant me something of liberty and just freedom of speech.  Therefore be kinder to me.  But if you regard my letter as coming from a servant, and from one who has not the right even to look you in the face, I will in this instance accept your stripes and not even shed a tear.  Will you blame me for this also?  That would befit anyone rather than your Reverence.  For it is the part of a high-souled man to accept more readily the freedom of a friend than the flattery of an enemy.
