Title: ON THE HOLY SPIRIT: ST. BASIL THE GREAT
St. Basil the Great wrote his treatise On the Holy Spirit during the closing phase of the Trinitarian controversies of the fourth century. The Arians had previously denied the full divinity of the Son and the debate turned to the Holy Spirit. In this work, without explicitly calling the Spirit "God", St. Basil demonstrates that He, like the Son, is of one and the same nature with the Father, and that equal honor and worship therefore are due Him. This classic exposition of Trinitarian doctrine eloquently sets forth the distinction yet perpetual communion and conjunction of the divine persons.
