Pope Gregory I Saint Gregory I, or Gregory the Great (called the Dialogist in Eastern Orthodoxy) (circa 540 - March 12, 604) was pope of the Catholic Church from September 3, 590 until his death.
He was born to a patrician Roman family and pursued a secular political career which climaxed in the position of Urban Prefect before he entered a monastery. About fifteen years later he became pope.
Gregory's chief acts as Pope include his role in the
schism of the Three Chapters, and sending Augustine of Canterbury to convert the Anglo-Saxons in Britain. He is also known in the East as a tireless worker for communication and understanding between East and West.
Works of Gregory I:
The sermons (40 on the Gospels are recognized as authentic, 22 on Ezekiel, 2 on the song of Songs)
Dialogues - on the life of Saint Benedict
Commentary on Job, frequently known even in English-language histories by its Latin title, Moralia in Job.
The Rule for Pastors
Some 850 letters have survived from his Papal Register of letters. This collection serves as an invaluable primary source for these years.
