Evagrius Ponticus is an increasingly important figure in the scholarship of early Christianity, particularly regarding monasticism, mysticism and the general relationship of Christian theology to classical philosophy. His surviving works constitute probably the largest corpus of writings from any Desert Farther. Evagrius Ponticus provides the teaching of an early master of asceticism, not as filtered through a disciple, but as he himself propounded it. This volume will provide a valuable frame of reference for students of the Desert Fathers, of Origen and his legacy, and indeed of the Greek mystical tradition.
