The Formation of Christian Theology - Volume 2. The Nicene Faith
Basil of Caesarea entered into the arena of theological controversy at a particularly important moment. He was born (c. 330) into an aristocratic Christian family who could trace their faith back to the third century, to the disciples of Gregory Thaumaturgus, who had brought Christianity to Pontus and had himself, so Basil believed, been a disciple of Origen.
Basil had studied for a number of years in Athens; taught rhetoric for a period in Caesarea; followed Eustathius of Sebaste (without ever catching up with him) on a tour of ascetic settlements in Asia Minor, Syria, Palestine, and Egypt; had been baptized upon his return; and spent some time in retreat on his family estate in Annisa with his friend Gregory of Nazianzus, reading through the works of Origen and compiling the Phibkalia, their collection of extracts from his works. Then, in December 359, Basil was put forward by Eustathius and Basil of Ancyra as their representative in a public debate with Aetius in Constantinople.
 Basil Ep. 204.6. For the connection to Origen, and the increasing importance for Basil of this family tradition deriving from Gregory, see Rousseau, Basil, n-14.
