An Ecclesiastical History To The 20th Year Of The Reign Of Constantine by Eusebius

WHILST Origen was attending to his accustomed duties at Cæsarea, many frequented his school, not only of the residents of the place, but also innumerable others from abroad, who left their country in order to attend his lectures. Of these the most noted whom we know is Theodorus, known also by the name of Gregory, and so celebrated among the bishops of our day; also his brother Athenodorus. Origen, seeing them excessively wrapt in the prosecution of the studies of the Greeks and Romans, infused into them the love of philosophy, and induced them to exchange their former zeal for the study of divine things. But after being with him five years, they made such improvement in the study of divine oracles, that both, though very young, were honoured with the episcopate in the churches of Pontus.
