During the later fifth and early sixth centuries the most creative developments in Eastern Christian monasticism occurred not in Egypt or in Syria, but in Palestine, through the work of St Euthymius and St Sabas. Cyril recounts their lives with striking vividness. He writes as an insider, basing himself carefully on the evidence of those who knew the two saints personally and describing with unusual topographical accuracy the monastic world in which he was himself living.

R.M. Price, a priest of the Westminster Dioceses, lectured on the History of Christianity at Heythrop College, University of London.

Reviews

"This is a primacy source of genuine value, highly influential in later Orthodox history, that brings to life a key period in the evolution of the monastic life."
Bishop Kallistos {Ware} of Diokleia

"This book belongs in every college, seminary, and university library."
Religious Studies Review

Highly recommended for librarians and scholars interested in the histories of Palestinian monasticism and the Jerusalem church when they were at the height of their power and prestige.
