Translated by Norman Russell, Introduction by Sister Benedicta Ward SLG
Eyewitness accounts of the lives and teachings of the fourth-century Desert Fathers from the Historia monachorum in Aegypto.
This book is a Cistercian publication.
“. . . 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.”
