This work by Christian monk and ascetic Evagrius Ponticus acts as a continuation of the historical works of Eusebius, Socrates Scholasticus, Sozomen, and Theodoretus. Evagrius historicizes the Nestorian and Monophysite controversies of the fifth and sixth centuries, and provides an absorbing commentary on the many subjects he documents. Comprising six parts, this work provides a classical scholar’s perspective on key cultural, political, and ecclesiastical events.
