Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt and Macarius of Alexandria, the four fathers presented in this volume, were well-known in Alexandria and Lower Egypt some 1600 years ago. Their lives, brought to fame by Palladius' Lausiac History, provide valuable insight into the Egyptian monastic communities of the fourth century and into the saintly tradition of the Coptic Church. This volume serves as a companion volume to St Macarius the Spiritbearer, also published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, which features further insight into Macarius of Egypt.
Four Desert Fathers is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.
