 The Asceticon of Abba Isaiah

Show Summary Details


The Asceticon of Abba Isaiah is an intriguing work in that it contains works of Macarius in both the Greek and Syriac manuscript traditions. The Isaian material proper also contains clear signs of Macarian influence, although these are rarely very profound and tend to be located in a second redactional layer.
