He translates widespread biblical characters in unexpected ways in which exemplify his excellent. through imitating their activities the monk enters a unbroken lineage of authority stretching again to Abraham.

This booklet demonstrates how the scriptures functioned as a dynamic strength within the lives of Christian priests within the fourth and 5th centuries, emphasizes the significance of Cassian within the improvement of the western monastic culture, and provides an alternative choice to the occasionally troublesome descriptions of patristic exegesis as "allegory" or "typology". Cassian has been defined as little greater than a supplier of data approximately Egyptian monasticism, yet a cautious examining of his paintings finds a worldly time table to outline and institutionalize orthodox monasticism within the Latin West.
