Saint Basil—Ascetical Works

Special!
   
Translated by Sister M. Monica Wagner, C.S.C.

Volume 9 of The Fathers of the Church: A New Translation

“Perhaps it may safely be asserted that the creation of true coenobitical monachism, receptive of both sexes and all classes, was substantially the work of St. Basil. Such features as the common house, the common table, prayer in common, all of which became constant and permanent in Western monasticism, may be considered original with him in the sense that he regulated and systematized these elements. [...]To this day[...]the fundamental concept of Greek and Slavonic monasticism continues to be the conception of St. Basil.”
