Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
