The Text of a Coptic Monastic Discourse on Love and Self-Control and its Story from the Fourth Century to the Twenty-First

Full Product Description

This book introduces a beautiful fourth-century Coptic discourse on love and self-control in its first English translation. The text's heading attributes it to Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria, but this attribution is questionable. Exploring issues of authorship and context, this book locates the origins of On Love and Self-Control in the Upper Egyptian Pachomian monastic community of the mid-fourth century. It then traces the various uses of On Love and Self-Control to the late eleventh and early twelfth centuries, when the single surviving manuscript was copied as part of an anthology at the Monastery of St. Shenoute of Atripe. A partial reconstruction of this now dismembered codex is provided.

The Text of a Coptic Monastic Discourse on Love and Self-Control and its Story from the Fourth Century to the Twenty-First by Carolyn Schneider was published by Liturgical Press in April 2017. The ISBN for The Text of a Coptic Monastic Discourse on Love and Self-Control and its Story from the Fourth Century to the Twenty-First is 9780879070724.
