about

Here for the first time is an assembled collection of some of Evagrius of Pontus most significant writings to date.
Evigarius is considered to be one of the most influential and controversial monastic theologians of the fourth century, yet he remains for many a mere reference or just another monk from the past. Often times he is alternately considered a saint while the opposing camps have slotted him with as a heretic along with Origen. Yet the influence of his writings is immeasurable, for in the West his teachings were chiefly passed down and shared via his disciple John Cassian; who in his own right is a prominent figure in desert monasticism. Nevertheless, in the East his texts have always been widely read, albeit often under the pseudonyms of less-suspicious authors.
His works remain some of the best for those who delve deeper into the writings among the Greek influences and those who have helped to define and shape the monastic world both within early Christianity and the dogma which we so richly cherish today. This small effort is a mere fragment of the collective works which are being discovered, translated and placed into the English language.
This edition of his writings is indeed not only a bezel of wisdom, but a marked entry into anyone’s library.
