This chapter focuses on the issue of education in early Christian biography. It analyzes eight biographies of several saints including Life of St. Antony, Life of St. Paul the Hermit, and De vita Gregorii Thaumaturgi. The analysis reveals that out of the eights live discussed, all but two inform us about the education of the saint and these were in the works of Saint Jerome and Gregory of Nyssa.

Keywords:   Christian biography, education, Life of St. Antony, Life of St. Paul the Hermit, De vita Gregorii Thaumaturgi, Saint Jerome, Gregory of Nyssa
