[[Basil the Great]], [[Gregory the Theologian]], and [[Gregory of Nyssa]]''', who were [[bishop]]s in Cappadocia (now central Turkey) in the fourth century.  They, along with St. [[Athanasius the Great]], laid the pattern for formulating the [[doctrine]]s related to the mystery of the [[Holy Trinity]].
