Overview

First-time translation of an ancient text Jeremy Driscoll makes available for the first time in English the text known as Ad Monachos, by Evagrius Ponticus (345-399), who was among the first of the desert fathers to articulate in writing the wisdom of the monastic movement. The text is a collection of 137 proverbs composed in a style that imitates the proverbs of biblical Wisdom literature. Besides offering the Greek text and an English translation, Driscoll examines its structure and style, and offers commentary on different proverbs.
