Epistle LI.

To Maximianus, Bishop.

Gregory to Maximinianus, Bishop of Syracuse14991499    See II. 7, note 5..

My brethren who live with me familiarly urge me by all means to write something briefly about the miracles of the Fathers done in Italy, which we have heard of.  With this view I am in great need of the assistance of your Charity, to mention to me shortly what comes back to your memory, and what you happen to have known.  For I remember your telling me something, which I have now forgotten, about the Lord15001500    Domno.  “Abbas autem, quia vices Christi agere creditur, Domnus et Abbas vocetur.”  Regula S. Benedicti, c. 63. Abbot Nonnosus, who was with the Lord15011501    Domno.  “Abbas autem, quia vices Christi agere creditur, Domnus et Abbas vocetur.”  Regula S. Benedicti, c. 63. Anastasius of Pentomi15021502    The miracles attributed to Nonnosus, which are here referred to, are told in Dialog. I. 7, as having been communicated to Gregory by Maximianus and an old monk called Laurio.  Nonnosos, at the time when they were wrought, had been Prior under Anastasius of a monastery on the summit of Mount Soracte..  And therefore this, or anything else, I beg thee to communicate to me by letter without delay, if indeed thou art not intending to come to me thyself shortly.
