Harlots of the Desert: A Study of Repentance in Early Monastic Sources by Benedicta Ward
  • Description
  • Reviews

Beauty consuming itself like incense burnt before God in solitude, the most stirring image of penitence conceivable. The contemporary lives of penitent harlots — St. Mary of Egypt, Pelagia, Thais, and Mary the niece of Abraham — presented an unforgettable moral lesson to early Christians.

“...this book has a real contemporary interest not only for students of monasticism but for anyone concerned with spirituality.”—The Way

“...without question, a book of very great importance for the reader of Christian monastic sources both timely and well done.”—Cistercian Studies

Softbound. 112 pp.
