trans. by Robert T. Meyer. Along with The Life of Saint Anthony by St. Athanasius, this forms the first volume of The Paradise of the Fathers. This volume describes monastic life in Egypt, Palestine, Syria Asia Minor in the form of biographic sketches, accounts and “sayings” of the holy men and women who struggled there. Palladius wished to teach Lausus (chamberlain to Emperor Theodosius II for whom the book was written) about building and forming a truly Christian character based on these edifying accounts. 265 pages, hardcover.
