While presenting issues related to virginity devoted to God, this article points to the variety of pastoral elements in the writings of Gregory of Naziansus, addressed to specific persons (apart from the faithful in general) who constituted objects of concern for the Bishop. The discussion, modest as it is within the limits of this article, focuses on one group of recipients, namely virgins, but urges one to deal with other recipients who presented the author addressed with particular concern.
