The Lausiac History

   
Palladius
Translated and Annotated by Robert T. Meyer

No. 34 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“In this book is recorded the wonderfully virtuous and ascetic life of the holy fathers, monks, and anchorites of the desert. It is written for the emulation and imitation of those who wish to succeed in the heavenly way of life and to take the journey which leads to the kingdom of heaven. It is written also to commemorate women far advanced in years and illustrious God-inspired mothers who have performed feats of virtuous asceticism in strong and perfect intention, as exemplars and models for those women who wish to wear the crown of self-abnegation and chastity.”
—“FOREWORD TO THE LIFE OF THE HOLY FATHERS”
