DOROTHEOS OF GAZA: DISCOURSES AND SAYINGS BY DOROTHEOS OF GAZA TRANSLATED BY ERIC WHEELER
A genial and insightful sixth-century monk, Dorotheos lets us glimpse a little of the life in his distant time and place. He doesn't write about theological abstractions, but about the passions and sins that every one of us recognizes in ourselves, monk or lay. He is an ideal spiritual master to introduce us into the rich spiritual universe of the deserts of Egypt, Palestine, and Syria.
