Homily on the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste (St. Basil the Great)

St. Basil's homily on the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste was delivered in 373, most probably on 9 March, their annual feast day. It was preached in the Martyrium of the Forty in Ceasarea.

The following translation of the text is from Let Us Die that We May Live: Greek Homilies on Christian Martyrs from Asia Minor, Palestine and Syria (c. A.D. 350 - A.D. 450) by Johan Leemans, Pauline Allen, Boudewijn Dehandschutter, Wendy Mayer. It can also be read here.
