Product Description
Matericon - Instructions of Abba Isaiah to the Honorable Nun Theodora
229 pages - Softcover

“The book is in three parts: the first part contains three letters of Abba Isaiah to Nun Theodora about the ‘external rules’ of the life of stillness; in the second part are the sayings of the holy women ascetics, which compose the Matericon itself; in the third part are the instructions of Abba Isaiah about the ‘inner life’ for those who live in seclusion. Although the instructions are for those who live in stillness, they are beneficial for all nuns who strive for perfection in monastic life: the nun in her cell is also a solitary hermitess, if she lives with discernment.” —“Introduction”
