Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XII:
The Book of Pastoral Rule, and Selected Epistles, of Gregory the Great.: Epistle LI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Epistle LI.

To Maximianus, Bishop.

Gregory to Maximinianus, Bishop of Syracuse 1499 .

My brethren who live with me familiarly urge me by all means to write something briefly about the miracles of the Fathers done in Italy, which we have heard of.  With this view I am in great need of the assistance of your Charity, to mention to me shortly what comes back to your memory, and what you happen to have known.  For I remember your telling me something, which I have now forgotten, about the Lord 1500 Abbot Nonnosus, who was with the Lord 1501 Anastasius of Pentomi 1502 .  And therefore this, or anything else, I beg thee to communicate to me by letter without delay, if indeed thou art not intending to come to me thyself shortly.
