Students of church history and the monastic ascetic life will find this volume of much interest. Contained are three important documents of the early Christian Church: The Sayings of the Fathers--written by holy men who separated themselves from their communities and lived as hermits along the banks of the Nile. The Conferences of Cassian--John Cassian visited Egypt and carried the message of the desert fathers to monasteries in Gaul. The Rule of Saint Benedict--Benedict utilized such documents as the Sayings and the Conferences and adapted them, applying the way of obedience, humility, and patience to all aspects of monastic life.
