Egypt is considered by many the birthplace of monasticism. In its deserts, early Christians found the lives of solitude and contemplation they longed for, and for some, respite from Roman persecution. They lived in seclusion, making homes out of caves and holes in the ground, and dedicated themselves to meditating on the person and presence of God. Now, with the Early Egyptian Monasticism collection, you can gain insight into their reclusive lives through a collation of patristic writings. These five volumes offer a trove of information straight from the pens of the Desert Fathers, ready to enhance your study of the early Egyptian church.
With Logos Bible Software, Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, and all cross-references link to the other resources in your digital library, making this collection powerful and easy to access—a rich supplement to any study on Egyptian monasticism. Perform comprehensive searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for instance, every mention of “Egyptian” or “recluse.”
