Product Description

In the year 394 seven monks from Palestine made a difficult journey through the Egyptian desert, drawn there by stories of remarkable men. What they found in the communities living far up the Nile Valley fully accorded with their expectations, and in the account written by one of their number we have a rare contemporary source of information about the lives of these Desert Fathers. This translation of the Historia monachorum in Aegypto. is the first available in English.

Editorial Reviews

. . . may make a good source for the historian; it may give some information and pleasure for the casual reader. But the spiritual man will never forget the people he meets in it.
Coptic Church Review

The work is a gem.
