Ad Monachos by Evagrius Ponticus translated and introduced by Jeremy Driscoll
  • Description
  • Reviews

Jeremy Driscoll makes available for the first time in English the text known as Ad Monachos, by Evagrius Ponticus (345-399), who was among the first of the desert fathers to articulate in writing the wisdom of the monastic movement.The text is a collection of 137 proverbs composed in a style that imitates the proverbs of biblical Wisdom literature. The order in which the proverbs are presented holds a secret key to each proverb's interpretation. The order of the whole functions as a spiritual road map for the arduous journey that leads through the exercise of love and temperance to the mind's knowledge of the Holy Trinity.

Besides offering the Greek text and an English translation, Driscoll examines its structure and style, and offers commentary on different proverbs. This noteworthy book — is the only major commentary in any modern language on Ad Monachos.
