Four Desert Fathers: Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt, and Macarius of Alexandria; Coptic Texts Relating to the Lausiac History of Palladius

   
Translated, with Introduction, by Tim Vivian
With the Assistance of Rowan A. Greer
Preface by Adalbert de Vogüé, OSB

Number 27 of Popular Patristics Series

“The four desert Fathers who give their names to this volume—Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt, and Macarius of Alexandria—were well known in late antiquity but were most famous, perhaps, because of their Lives recounted by the monk (and later bishop) Palladius in his Lausiac History. The Lausiac History, however, is not a straightforward historical source; theological and spiritual issues, indeed arguments and bitter fisticuffs, have seemingly shaped its form and contents. The most important of these issues vis-à-vis the four Lives offered here were Origenism and the Anthropomorphite controversy.”

    Second Edition, Reprinted with additions By Constantine Cavarnos Volume 3 of [link BKC001S]Modern Orthodox Saints[/link] “St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite was born in 1749 in Naxos, one of the Aegean islands. He received his elementary education there. His teacher was Archimandrite Chrysanthos Aitolos, (d. 1785), brother of St. Cosmas. A distinguished teacher, Chrysanthos taught for a time at the Patriarchal school at Constantinople before he became Director of the school in Naxos. He shared Cosmas’ sentiments and convictions; and thus the powerful message and example of the saint of Aitolia began to influence Nicodemos at a very early age, when Cosmas was traveling about as a missionary.” —“Introductory” CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTORY THE LIFE OF SAINT NICODEMOS    By Gerasimos Micragiannanitis, of Mount Athos WORKS OF THE SAINT WRITINGS OF THE SAINT SELECTED PASSAGES FROM THE THE WORKS OF ST.
