These three texts - The Sayings of Saint Macarius, The Virtues of Saint Macarius, and The Life of Saint Macarius of Scetis- provide insight into one of the most venerated saints of the Coptic Church and into the life in the Egyptian monastic communities of the fourth century. This work is a companion volume to Four Desert Fathers, also published by SVS Press, which features the lives of Macarius the Spiritbearer, Macarius of Alexandria, Pambo and Evagrius. The two volumes together, introducing the thought and practice of these desert dwellers through their Sayings, Virtues and Lives, offer the best access to their world.Biografía del autor:
The Rev. Dr Tim Vivian is Lecturer in Religious Studies at California State University, Bakersfield, and the translator of numerous early patristics texts.

Descripción St. Vladimirs Seminary Press December 2004, 2004. Paper Back. Condición: New. This volume, paired with Four Desert Fathers, brings the lives and teachings of four Coptic monks to a wider audience than Gabriel Bunge and Adalbert de Vogüé's original, largely academic, French translations from the Coptic Palladiana. Dr. Tim Vivian, a Lecturer in Religious Studies at California State-Bakersfield, has translated the Lives of Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt (also known as Macarius the Great) and Macarius of Alexandria from the French as well as the Sayings, the Virtues, and a later Life of St. Macarius of Scetis (Macarius the Great). Monks of the fifth century, these four lived in the monastic communities of Lower Egypt (called Wadi al-Natrun) primarily as eremitic ascetics. Ah, but not entirely, else we would never know their names or be privy to their sometimes humorous, invariably sagacious manner of life in the Holy Spirit. Miraculous tales (Macarius of Egypt once healed three newborn antelope calves and a hyena cub) are woven with pragmatic counsel worth committing to heart. After instructing a brother to alternately abuse and praise the dead, one of the fathers counsels, ''If you wish to be saved, go, be dead, take no account of people's scorn or their compliments, like the dead themselves, and you can be saved.'' Other encounters contain the poem's power to enliven with a single image: ''Abba Macarius dismissed the congregation from Scetis and said to the brothers, 'Flee, brothers.' An old man said to him, 'Where shall we flee beyond this desert?' He placed his finger on his mouth and said, 'This is flight.'''. Nº de ref. del artículo: 136858
