Barlaam and Ioasaph (Greek Text)


William Heinemann, Macmillan Co. 1914

The Greek legend of Barlaam and Ioasaph, traditionally attributed to St. John Damascene, serves as a retelling of the life of Buddha through a Christian lens. Although the story’s original plot may have been adapted from Christians of the East for their own use, St. Damascene’s Barlaam and Ioasaph is clearly a celebration of Christian monasticism. The Greek text and the English translation are both provided in this volume, along with an in-depth introduction in which the authors discuss its authorship and more.
