Product Description

Athanasius:  The Life of Antony and The Letter to Marcellinus

Paperback, 166 pages

Athanasius was a major figure of 14th-century Christendom.  As the Bishop of Alexandria, spiritual master and theologian, he led the Church in its battle against the Arian heresy.  Athanasius' The Life of Antony is one of the foremost classics of Christian asceticism.  It tells the spiritual story of St. Antony, the founder of Christian monasticism.  Written at the request of the desert monks of Egypt to provide "an ideal pattern of the ascetical life," it immediately became astonishingly popular.  This work contributed greatly to the establishment of monastic life in Western Christianity.  From a literary perspective, it created a new Christian genre for the lives of saints.

The Letter to Marcellinus is an introduction to the spiritual sense of the Psalms.  The Psalms are presented as a variety of attitudes which coexist in a truly harmonious and whole sense of prayer.
