A fascinating collection of texts about monks and their ways in the ancient middle east. The most intriguing are two (Pambo and Onnuphrius) that must be classed as imaginative literature of the spiritual journey. George of Choziba is the most down-to-earth and realistic, despite all the miracles. One minor cavil: Vivian's over-literal translation style sometimes falls into a kind of "translatese" with odd results. But never mind, this book is a major boon to those of us who haven't had access to many writings of this kind in English.
