BASILIUS.  Latin form of Greek Basileios (q.v.), meaning "kingly." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also see English Basil.

... The largest are the monasteries of Ivoron and St. Laura; the richest, Vatopædi.  The entire number of monks who inhabit the "Holy Hill" is about 8000.  They form a kind of monastic republic under the Turkish government, to which they pay an annual tribute of nearly 4000.  The monks follow the rule of Basilius, and lead an ascetic life, engaged chiefly in agriculture, gardening, and the care of bees. (Chambers's Encyclopedia, 1874)
