Description

While many people are familiar with the great spiritual writings and authors of the early Greek and Latin Christian traditions, few are aware of the writings from the Syriac fathers that come from the same eras. This is at least partly the result of a lack of access to these texts because they have not previously been made available in translation. This book provides an anthology of texts from the Christian Syriac tradition that focus on the concepts of prayer and the spiritual life. Brock begins with selections from the earliest Syriac authors of the fourth century, Aphrahat and Ephrem, and proceeds with selections over the following centuries. 236 pages. 236 pages
