The Praktikos & Chapters On Prayer by Evagrius Ponticus

Translated, with an Introduction, by John Eudes Bamberger OCSO

The living link through whom the ascetic principles of hellenistic philosophers passed into monasticism, Evagrius molded christian asceticism through his own works and through his influcence on John Cassian, Climacus, Pseudo–Denis, and Saint Benedict.


"Evagrius received the desert tradition about prayer that had been developed over several generations before him. But he was the first to organize it into a coherent system." -Coptic Church Review
