Theoroes

by Elijah

Theoroes is shorthand for ‘theological heroes’.  These people represent the most important theological influences in my life and are organised alphabetically based upon their historical period.  This list excludes Jesus of Nazareth, the Apostles and the writers of the Holy Scripture.

Early Church/Church Fathers

  • St Athanasius, Doctor of the Church, Patriarch of Alexandria (293-373)
  • St Augustine, Doctor of the Church, Bishop of Hippo (354-430)
  • The Cappadocian Fathers – St Basil the Great, Doctor of the Church, Bishop of Ceasarea (330-379), Gregory of Nyssa, Bishop of Nyssa (c. 330-395) and Gregory of Nazianzus, Doctor of the Church, Patriarch of Constantinople (329-389)
  • St Jerome, Doctor of the Church, Illyrian priest (347-420)
