Basil of Caesarea (greek: Βασίλειος Καισαρείας),

Basil the Great was bishop of Caesarea and one of the Three Holy Hierarchs, together with Saints Gregory the Theologian (Gregory Nazianzus) and John Chrysostom. Basil, Gregory the Theologian, and Basil's brother Saint Gregory of Nyssa are called the Cappadocian Fathers. The Roman Catholic Church also considers him a saint and calls him a Doctor of the Church.

One liturgy attributed to Saint Basil is The Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great, which is still used on every Sunday of Great Lent and January 1, when his memory is celebrated.
