Studies on Spiritual Progress in Evagrius Ponticus
By Abbot Jeremy Driscoll, O.S.B.
“The book treats the following major themes of fourth-century monasticism—spiritual progress, exegesis, purity of heart, and monastic prayer—and thereby bridges the distance between ourselves and this treasure from another time. Evagrius’s words awaken new spiritual desires as he defines and helps the reader to understand one’s interior life. He sets out challenging conditions that are requirements for the spiritual goal—knowledge of the Holy Trinity in a luminous place of prayer.”
