St Basil on the Creation of Man

God creates Eve from Adam's side.

On Harmony of Thunder you may hear St. Basil's final sermon from the Hexaemeron (the six days of creation). This sermon focuses on the pinnacle of creation - Man - made in the Image of God, the only creature made after God's Kind.
In this ultimate act of the six days of creation, God ceases creating. On the seventh day begins the Sabbath rest of God and Man in perfect communion until death entered the world by disobedience.

This Podcast can be heard here. You may also read the text of St. Basil's sermon here.
