-Publisher

Students of church history and monastic and ascetic life will find this volume of much interest. Contained are three important documents of early Christian Church:The Sayings of the Fathers-written by holy men who separated themselves from their communities and lived as hermits along the banks of the Nile. The Conferences of Cassian-John Cassian visited Egypt and carried the message of the desert fathers to monasteries in Gaul. The Rule of Saint benedict-Benedict utilized such documents as the Sayings and the Conferences and adapted them, applying the way of obedience, humility and patience to all aspects of monastic life.
