Basil: the Lion of Christ

I wish Western Christians a blessed Triduum. For the Orthodox, we still have many weeks until Pascha. For lenten fare today, I offer an episode of the Greek television series Δεν Είσαι Μόνος: “Basil the Great: The Lion of Christ.” The episode recounts a letter by a monk whose adventures introduce him to the Arian controversy and to the imperial politics of late antiquity, wherein he meets the illustrious Orthodox Fathers of the Age. The narration is complemented by beautiful footage of the Eastern Empire. The video has English subtitles for you βαρβάρους out there.

You may watch other episodes of Δεν Είσαι Μόνος on ERT.
