MaishaEdit

Alizaliwa katika familia ya kisharifu ya watakatifu. Baba yake aliitwa Gregori mzee na mama yake Nonna. Kaka yake alikuwa Gregori wa Nazienzi.

Baba, aliyekuwa Myahudi, aliongokea Ukristo kwa msaada wa mke wake na hatimaye akawa askofu wa Nazianzo.

Hata hivyo Sesari alibatizwa tu muda mfupi kabla hajafa kwa tauni, baada ya kunusurika kufa katika tetemeko la ardhi lililopata mji wa Nisea alipokuwa afisa wa serikali.

Alikuwa amesoma fani mbalimbali kwanza huko Kaisarea wa Kapadokia, halafu Aleksandria ya Misri, alipowazidi wanafunzi wenzake wote[6].
