“For He became man, so that we may become god; and He manifested Himself by body, so that we may receive a perception of the unseen Father; and He endured the shame from men, so that we may inherit immortality”

(St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation, 54)

“In praising Athanasius, I shall be praising virtue. To speak of him and to praise virtue are identical, because he had, or, to speak more truly, has embraced virtue in its entirety”.

(St. Gregory Nazianzus: Oration 21: On Athanasius of Alexandria)
