FOUR DESERT FATHERS: PAMBO, EVAGRIUS, MACARIUS OF EGYPT AND MACARIUS OF ALEXANDRIA

#: 10248

Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt and Macarius of Alexandria, the four fathers presented in this volume, were well-known in Alexandria and Lower Egypt some 1600 years ago. Their lives, brought to fame by Palladius` Lausiac History, provide valuable insight into the Egyptian monastic communities of the fourth century and into the saintly tradition of the Coptic Church. This volume serves as a companion volume to St Macarius the Spiritbearer, also published by St. Vladimir`s Seminary Press, which features further insight into Macarius of Egypt.

Four Desert Fathers is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.
