Funeral orations. McGuire, M., editor Fathers of the Church, New York:, 1953.
abstract   bibtex   
According to Fr. John Behr (St. Vladimir Seminary) St. Gregory Nazianzen's oration, On St. Basil the Great, Bishop of Caesarea, contains the most powerful apolegetic in early Christianity for the value and utility of learning for the Christian. Specifically, Gregory argues that from the study of secular literature we have received “the principles of inquiry and contemplation,” theoria, that deeper level of understanding that comes after we understand the words on the page, grammar, which helps to see why grammar, rhetoric and logic formed the foundation - trivuum - of a “classical education.”
