9780881413373: Dragon's Wine and Angel's Bread: The Teaching of Evagrius Ponticus on Anger and Meekness

Evagrius Ponticus (343 399 AD) spent sixteen years in the desert of Egypt, where he gained the gift of insight into the human soul. His writings influenced the theology of John Cassian, Diadochus of Photike, Maximus the Confessor, and Palladius. Evagrius image of the human being, profoundly biblical, allowed for a perceptive understanding of anger, its causes, consequences and cures. His major study on the topic not ordinarily covered
in works of theology appears here in the English language for the first time and offers timeless wisdom on struggling with this passion.

Descripción St Vladimirs Seminary Pr October 2009, 2009. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. In contrast to psychology, which justifies anger and aggressiveness as 'natural' human tendencies, Evagrius Ponticus castigates their 'unnatural' outcome: 'No other evil makes man in particular as much like a demon as anger.' Where spiritual life elevates our nature to the angelic plane, anger drives us downward toward the 'bestial' state. Drawing on his knowledge of Evagrius's fourth-century writings, Bunge renders this great 'desert philosopher's' teachings on anger both accessible and applicable to modern readers. When Evagrius describes troubled dreams, obsessive thoughts, and other consequences of anger, his paramount concern lies with their impact on prayer: 'The man who stores up injuries and resentments and yet fancies he prays might as well draw water from a well and put it in a cask that is full of holes.' Evagrius demonstrates how an angry person's prayer leads to idolatry (we turn from God to contemplate the face of the one who has offended us), even heresy. To heal this illness of the soul, vice must be replaced with its opposite virtue - love, in the form of humility and meekness. With a keen grasp of scriptural allegory, Bunge unpacks Evagrius's Old Testament models of 'warlike' meekness, especially David and Moses. Here is 'neither a weak yielding, nor.the reckless playing out of one's superiority and strength, but rather.submission of one's self, so that the other might have life.' 148 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 131036
