Three Byzantine Saints
These Byzantine biographies of St Daniel the Stylite, St Theodore of Sykeon and St John the Almsgiver help us to enter into the Byzantine ascetic thought world, with its miracles, the closeness of saints and demons, contempt for the body and longing for peace of soul. They also give us a vivid picture of life in Asia Minor before the Arab invasions, and are in many ways documents concerning the social history of Byzantium which capture the widely divergent aspects of Byzantine piety. The introduction and bibliographical notes are a mine of information and are matched by the excellence of the translations.
