St Macarius the Spirit Bearer: Coptic Texts Relating To Saint Macarius The Great Macarius of Egypt
  • Description
  • Reviews

Macarius the Great (also referred to as Macarius of Egypt or Macarius the Egyptian) presided over a loosely knit scattering of ascetic monastic communities in the fourth century Egyptian desert. He enjoyed great respect during his lifetime and his fame was further spread after appearing in Palladius' Lausiac History. This volume presents three ancient texts , The Sayings of Saint Macarius, The Virtues of Saint Macarius and The Life of Saint Macarius of Scetis and provides valuable insight into the world of Coptic spirituality and early Egyptian asceticism. This work is a companion volume to Four Desert Fathers, also published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, which features the lives of Macrius the Spiritbearer, Macarius of Alexandria, Pambo and Evagrius.

St. Macarius the Spiritbearer is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.
