Basil of Cecarea

We just learned about the Pachomius the Great.

Another famous Monk was Basil of Cecarea.

Basil was born into a rich family, but his father was killed for being a Christian.
He was raised by his mother and went to school, but when he got older he gave money to the poor, and made a place where he and others could study and worship God, like a monastery.
A lot of people liked him and asked him for wisdom, and he also worked very hard to try and talk to people who were having problems in life, and tell them that they should be good and believe in God.
