The Cappadocians: A Short Bibliography for Ordinary Readers

I am sometimes asked what to read to learn more about the fourth-century Christians I’ve studied who are called the “Cappadocians.” In response, I developed this free online 2-page bibliography with just a few of the most significant references related to their lives and work. It also also includes some easy-to-find resources on a later writer, John Chrysostom, who was bishop of Antioch and Constantinople (and not a Cappadocian) who is sometimes mentioned with Basil and Gregory of Nazianzus, in the literature as well as in popular icons. Since this material may (I hope) spark interest to read further, it also includes a few other suggestions beyond these particular writers from late antiquity. Choose what interests you, read only as much as interests you, and enjoy your reading!
