Description: In this episode we will introduce another thread in the story that leads up to the Second Ecumenical Council in Constantinople in the year 381AD. The thread we will focus in on today is how a larger than life intellectual, bishop and theologian would help to define the dogma of Christianity and seriously impact the political situation of his own day. Gregory and Nazianzus and his fellow Cappadocian Fathers are key players in the development of the Catholic Orthodox party position.
