Church History: Chapter 22 – Gregory the Great
Gregory the Great was one of the four “Doctors” of the early Latin Church. He was born in 540 A.D. in a well to do Christian family in Rome. He spent six years in Constantinople where he spent a great deal of time teaching and defending the faith. When he returned to Rome he became the Pope and led the Church through the plague and invasions of the Lombards. He was a prolific writer and from his writings we can appreciate his views on the Bible, the Church, the Devil and pastoral care.
