Description

An Encomium on Saint Anthony by John of Schmun A letter to the Disciples of Antony by Serapion of ThmuisInstrumental in the conversion of many, including St. Augustine, The Life of Antony provided the model saint’s life and constitutes, in the words of patristics scholar Johannes Quasten, ‘the most important document of early monasticism.’ Here is one volume are translations of the text in the Greek written by Athanasius (from the new critical edition of G. J. M. Bartelink) and in the Coptic, the language Antony himself spoke. Two short contemporary coptic texts further manifest the powerful influence of ‘the father of monks.’
