ABOUT THIS BOOK

A new English translation for scholars and students of church history


Evagrius exerted a striking impact on the development of spirituality, of Origenism, and of the spiritual interpretation of the Bible in Greek, Syriac, and Latin Christianity. This English translation of the most complete Syriac version of Kephalaia Gnostika makes Evagrius Ponticus's thoughts concerning reality, God, protology, eschatology, anthropology, and allegorical exegesis of Scripture widely available.


Features:


  • English translation of the longer Syriac version discovered by Antoine Guillaumont

  • Commentary provides an integrated analysis of Evagrius's ascetic and philosophical writings

  • Extensive introduction on the importance of Evagrius and the context of his writings
