Orthodox Saints & Patristic Church Fathers (211)
This collection of the spiritual writings of St Gregory of Nyssa, selected and introduced by Jean Danielou, has long been recognized as an authoritative introduction to the "father of mysticism," who exploded classical antiquity`s static understanding of perfection by showing the Christian life as one of never-ending growth, a true dynamic movement “from glory to glory.”

Here, for those without the benefit of extensive patristic libraries, are daily readings from the lifeblood of patristic literature. Each month`s readings are based on a theme: the glory of creation or pleas for God`s mercy or the role of Christ`s Church. The translations are readable, the selections memorable, and the careful organization of the selections lends more coherence to them than in many similar works.

The second most valuable source of information, after the History of the Monks of Palestine of Cyril Scythopolis, regarding the history of monasticism in the Judaean desert is the collection of stories and anecdotes by John Moschus, a monk of the Judaean desert in the late sixth century. Moschus traveled frequently between the monastic centers of Egypt, Syria, Palestine, and Asia Minor. He collected his stories during his travels and compiled them in a Greek work known as Pratum Spirituale or Spiritual Meadow.
