Desert Fathers/Mothers (12)
The narrow stretch of desert between the Jordan Valley and the hill country of Judea drew great biblical prophets—Elijah and John the Baptist—and unforgettable christian ascetics. Our best source of information on this movement from AD 400-600 comes from Cyril`s pen.

Give me a word, Father. From the time of Saint Antonyat leastyounger monks would ask older, experienced monks, abbas or ammas (fathers or mothers), for a saving word, for advice, for wise counsel on how to live. In this book, Coptic scholar and priest Tim Vivian shares personal accounts of journeys to present-day monasteries in Egypt, and translations of ancient texts exemplifying the words, the insights that have guided desert monks for nearly two millennia. Those who study the monastic tradition professionally and those who search it spiritually will find matter for reflection here.
