“...the major source for the history of monasticism in northern Syria...”

— Coptic Church

A history of the Syrian monks of the fourth and fifth centuries. Describes the extraordinary lives of these men and women of God and the spirituality which they spectacularly embodied. An apologist, an exegete, and a champion of antiochene christology, Bishop Theodoret presents an austere ideal of holiness which Syrian Christians found irresistible.
