The Life of Macrina

This text, The Life of Macrina, written by Gregory of Nyssa, was my favorite reading from Church History. It is a beautiful picture of total self-abandonment to Christ and the joy, miracles, radiance, and love that flow from such deep communion with her Lord. The link I included takes you to a page that includes notes and an introduction, but just scroll down for the full, original text. This was written in the 4th century.
