The narrow stretch of desert between the Jordan Valley and the hill country of Judea drew great biblical prophets’Elijah and John the Baptist’and unforgettable christian ascetics. Our best source of information on this movement from AD 400-600 comes from Cyril's pen.


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.
