Jeremy Driscoll makes available for the first time in English the text known as Ad Monachos, by Evagrius Ponticus (345-399), who was among the first of the desert fathers to articulate in writing the wisdom of the monastic movement.The text is a collection of 137 proverbs composed in a style that imitates the proverbs of biblical Wisdom literature. The order in which the proverbs are presented holds a secret key to each proverb`s interpretation. The order of the whole functions as a spiritual road map for the arduous journey that leads through the exercise of love and temperance to the mind`s knowledge of the Holy Trinity.
