This is the first complete English translation of Evagrius' Greek ascetic writings, based on modern critical editions, and collations of the principal manuscripts. Two appendices provide variant readings for the Greek texts and the complete text of the long recension of Eulogios. The translations are accompanied by a commentary to guide the reader through the intricacies of Evagrian thought by offering explanatory comments and references to other Evagrian texts and relevant scholarly literature.

"Robert Sinkewicz offers a valuable aid to the renewed attention to one of the most important spiritual and ascetic Eastern writers, by providing a translation of the entire remaining Greek corpus of Evagruis' writings. A useful overview of Evagruis himself and spiritual theology, especially his teaching regarding the eight evil thoughts or temptations. This work is sure to become a familiar and well-used resource for the study of eastern spirituality." --St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly
