Product Description
Abba Isaiah Of Scetis: Ascetic Discourses - by John Chryssavgis (Translator), Pachomios (Robert) Penkett (Translator)
282 pages - Softcover

Written in the fifth century, during one of the most formative periods of christian monasticism in Egypt and Palestine, The Ascetic Discourses show a strong influence of the Scripture, both Old and New, and of Early monastic writers. They are marked by a faithfulness to tradition, yet equally by a note of originality distinctive to the Gaza region. Abba Isaiah has set forth a practical guide for monks, ever aware of the challenges that interpersonal relationships present within monastic communities.
