    In the year 395, a group of seven monks from a monastery on the Mount of Olives went on a trip to Egypt to see some of the Desert Fathers. They worked their way from Lycopolis (Asyut) to Diolcopolis (Diolcos). They stopped at various locations to visit monks and hermits, attending worship services, listening to sermons, gathering edifying tales and enjoying the hospitality and charity of the fathers. Ten years later, an anonymous Greek text was produced by one of the travelers. It was almost imm [...]

    There are many stories from the desert fathers that I find edifying. This collection however is not so much stories from the desert fathers as their history and lives as they lived them in the desert. While I do find some very important lessons here, for me these lives are not easily translated into a Christianity that can be imitated. In fact for me, these lives are inimitable and thus of limited importance to my life. In almost any generation of Christians the writings talk of some previous ge [...]

    A most interesting and inspiring readI like these guys. Didymus was said to be a man of `charming countenance'; Apollo told people that happiness was not an option but an obligation for Christians: "He used to say: `Those who are going to inherit the kingdom of heaven must not be despondent about their salvation. The pagans are gloomy [is this a reference to Al Gore's apocalyptic ideas?], and the Jews wail, and sinners mourn, but the just will rejoice we who have been considered worthy of so gr [...]

    Outstanding examination by Benedicta Ward of the reasons why the Desert Fathers went into the Egyptian desert. Equally fine translation + notes by Norman Russell of the original Greek text, Rufinus' additional notes, and the Syriac version.

    A group of monks from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, eclectic in their backgrounds and roots, embark together on an epic journey. The year is situated sometime in the mid-390's, and their destination is not one but numerous places. They journey together to seek to meet the Desert Fathers of legend face-to-face, to sit with these ancient anchorites of caves and the wild places, to listen to them speak and pray, and most importantly, to watch how it is that these men live their lives in emulati [...]

    This is a really great and accessible edition of the Historia Monachorum in Aegypto. There is a solid introduction, the text is laid out nicely, the translation is fluid and clear, and there are sufficient scholarly notes to follow up references and quotations. There is also a wonderful section providing the additions that Rufinus made to the text, and comments on the Syriac verision. There is very little of the original language(s) contained in this edition.The text itself is an account of grou [...]

    This book is a combination of primary and secondary sources about the monks and hermits in the desert of Egypt in 4th CE. Sister Benedicta Ward provides a comprehensive introduction explaining who these monks were and how they got the desert. She also introduces the reader to the various types of visitors to the desert including the author of the primary source the Historia Monachorum that records the trip of 7 monks who meet many of the desert fathers and tell their stories of lives.
