Athletes of Prayer: The monastic tradition, rooted in the lives and writings of the Desert Fathers and the Benedictine Rule, was the great birthplace and laboratory for much later Christian spirituality and liturgical development. Antony, Benedict, John Moschus, John Climacus, Cyril of Scythopolis, and Dorotheus of Gaza are only a few of the monastic fathers and saints represented here.
