Athanasius And Asceticism

Full Product Description

The early Christian Church faced a crisis during the 4th century as many of its follower eagerly shunned all wordly comforts and embraced asceticism as a means to achieve divine grace. How could the Church accept and admire these ascetics and at the same time sustain congregations of families whose well-being, propagation and generosity assured the future of the Church? Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, is given credit in this work for successfully establishing a set of practices and influencing a number of communities - the extraordinary monasteries of Christian Egypt - that reconciled this world and the next.

Athanasius And Asceticism by David Brakke was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in December 1998 and is our 50117th best seller. The ISBN for Athanasius And Asceticism is 9780801860553.
