This volume collects a number of important texts that have never before been translated into a modern language, each of which describes the late antique conditions and experiences on the Sinai peninsula. The texts in translation include Pseudo-Nilus's "Narrationes," Nilus of Ancyrus's "Epistula," and fifty tales attributed to Anastasius of Sinai. All remain important for late antique history, literature, and religion, as well as for their special focus on developments in the Sinai region prior to the Islamic period.
