One of our most important sources for the history of earliest monasticism. Palladius (b. ca. 364) was a student of Evagrius, and soon after embracing monasticism in Palestine traveled to Egypt to encounter for himself -- in a manner to be repeated later by John Cassian and John Moschus -- the already venerable Fathers of the Egyptian desert. The Lausiac History is the record of these encounters. 265 pp.
An Eighth Day View:
A monumental project which brings the English-speaking work key selections from the remarkable literature of early Christianity -- vertiable trasures of Christian faith and theology in superb translations.
