Macrina and the Three Cappadocians

Join Lucy, Trinity, Christian, and Emma as they talk to Colorado Christian University Professor Megan Devore about one family's huge influence during the fourth century. Meet Macrina, who convinced her mother to free all their slaves and build a community where everyone helped each other and those around them. Meet her brother Basil, who started the first hospital, their brother Gregory of Nyssa, who gave the first known sermon against slavery, and their friend Gregory of Nazianzus, who wrote important works about the Trinity. Discover why some Christians chose to live apart from others and why one spent 40 years of his life on a pillar that became taller than a giraffe. Discover all this and more in this episode of Kids Talk Church History!
