John Cassian and the Reading of Egyptian Monastic Culture

Full Product Description

This book examines the method of meditative reading encouraged by John Cassian (c. 360-435) in his ascetic writings, the bulk of which are fictive dialogues that purportedly record the instruction he had received from Egyptial Christian monks. This instruction was at its core an interactive experience, depending upon both the discernment of the master and diligent application of instruction by the student. Driver examines Cassian's understanding of the act of reading and suggests the implications of this for Cassian's monastic teaching and it interprets Cassian's method of reading in light of contemporary discussions of reading and the self.

John Cassian and the Reading of Egyptian Monastic Culture by Steven D. Driver was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in April 2016. The ISBN for John Cassian and the Reading of Egyptian Monastic Culture is 9781138973855.
