    [Footnotes moved to the end and combined with editorial notes] 1. Chapter. I. p. There is a certain resemblance here with the famous opening of the seventh book of Plato's Republic; but Gregory, in spite of his residence at Constantinople, knew hardly any Greek, and the analogy is probably accidental.. 2. An extensively researched historical biography of one of the great Popes of the Catholic Church and a doctor of the Church. Though necessarily dry by nature of the work, still it tells an interesting story and offers a real appreciation for the world during Gregory's rein as Pontiff.

    The Second Book Of the Life and Miracles of St. Benedict 1. There was a man of venerable life, blessed by grace, and blessed in name, for he was called "Benedictus" or Benedict: who, from his younger years, carried always the mind of an old man; for his age was inferior to his virtue: all vain pleasure he contemned, and though he were in the world, and might freely have enjoyed such.   St. Gregory the Great’s greatness was rooted in this reluctance to be great and his dedication to self-discipline, humility, and meekness. For people of faith, greatness should not be the stated goal. Greatness is the result of a very different goal, and that goal is love. Gregory was a saint of great love for things good, true, and beautiful.
