Evagrius Ponticus, Ad monachos by Evagrius( Book )
19 editions published between 1912 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 644 libraries worldwide
"This latest volume in the Ancient Christian Writers series provides an original English translation of the text known as Ad Monachos by Evagrius Ponticus (345-399). The ancient text is a collection of 137 proverbs composed by Evagrius, imitating a biblical style and often intentionally enigmatic. The translation is made with a view toward catching the biblical echoes. In addition, an English equivalent of the pleasing Greek rhythms is created in order to facilitate memorization and meditation. At first glance the 137 proverbs may strike the reader as being haphazardly joined together. For someone unfamiliar with Evagrius's thought and language, some of the proverbs would seem especially bland, others impossibly mysterious. And yet this is a text whose value and interest can only be measured accurately once a key to reading it is discovered and actually used to unlock the very rich levels of meaning in each of its proverbs. This is accomplished in Jeremy Driscoll's extensive commentary." [Book jacket]
The praktikos. Chapters on prayer by Evagrius( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and held by 441 libraries worldwide
Evagrius Ponticus is the living link through whom the ascetic principles of Hellenistic philosophers passed into the mainstream of Christian monaticism. Although not known by name for generations, Evagrius molded the ideals of Western asceticism through his own widely-disseminated works and through his influence on intermediaries like John Cassian and, through Cassian, Saint Benedict of Nursia. To those seeking God alone, he counselled absolute solitude: the solitude of separation from the world and the solitude of the human soul

Evagrius of Pontus : the Greek ascetic corpus by Evagrius( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 198 libraries worldwide
"Most of the surviving works of Evagrius of Pontus have been available in printed editions in the West for almost two centuries, but there is still no complete English translation for the entire corpus. The present translation endeavours to provide an English version for the thirteen works of the Greek ascetic corpus, exclusive of the biblical scholia and the fragmentary Gnostikos. To assure a reasonably reliable textual basis for the translation, all the texts without critical editions have been collated against the principal manuscripts. Detailed information on the textual basis of the translation and the complete Greek text of the long recension of the Eulogios are provided in the appendices. To assist the reader in the understanding and study of these texts, Robert E. Sinkewicz has provided a general introduction to the life of Evagrius and his ascetic doctrine as well as particular introductions to each of the works. The translations themselves are accompanied by a commentary to guide the reader through the intricacies of Evagrian thought by offering explanatory comments and references to other Evagrian texts and relevant scholarly literature. Finally, detailed indexes have been provided to allow the reader to identify and study the numerous themes of Evagrian teaching."--Jacket
Talking back : a monastic handbook for combating demons by Evagrius( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
How did the monks of the Egyptian desert fight against the demons that attacked them with tempting thoughts? How could Christians resist the thoughts of gluttony, fornication, or pride that assailed them and obstructed their contemplation of God? According to Evagrius of Pontus (345-399), one of the greatest spiritual directors of ancient monasticism, the monk should "talk back" to demons with relevant passages from the Bible. His book Talking Back (Antirrhetikos) lists over 500 thoughts or circumstances in which the demon-fighting monk might find himself, along with the biblical passages with which the monk should respond. It became one of the most popular books among the ascetics of Late Antiquity and the Byzantine East, but until now the entire text had not been translated into English. From Talking Back we gain a better understanding of Evagrius's eight primary demons: gluttony, fornication, love of money, sadness, anger, listlessness, vainglory, and pride. We can explore a central aspect of early monastic spirituality, and we get a glimpse of the temptations and anxieties that the first desert monks faced. -- Publisher
Chapitres sur la prière by Evagrius( Book )
6 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 130 libraries worldwide
"Les Chapitres sur la prière, au nombre de 153, comme les poissons de la pêche miraculeuse, représentent la fine pointe de l’enseignement d’Évagre, exprimé dans une langue ciselée et selon sa forme littéraire préférée. Après Clément d’Alexandrie et Origène, Évagre y aborde à son tour la prière, qu’il présente de manière épurée comme un colloque intime entre l’intellect et Dieu. Alors que dans d’autres traités il avait surtout analysé les passions et les pensées de l’âme, il explore ici l’intellect humain, dont il reconnaît à la fois la prééminence et les faiblesses, et s’em- ploie à déjouer les pièges empêchant celui-ci d’atteindre la prière « en esprit et en vérité ». Il s’agit notamment de se débarrasser de toute forme de représentation et de mul- tiplicité : car, au rebours de maintes pratiques modernes de méditation, cette contemplation exclut tout usage de l’imagination. Le traité a joui d’une grande popularité à la période byzantine, comme le montrent le nombre élevé des manuscrits et l’abondante tradition indirecte. L’authen- ticité évagrienne du traité, transmis pendant des siècles sous le nom de Nil d’Ancyre, est un point désormais acquis. Cette édition critique, complétée par plusieurs appendices, entend restituer ainsi sa teneur originelle." --
Evagrius, Kephalaia gnostika : a new translation of the unreformed text from the Syriac by Evagrius( Book )
6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
Evagrius exerted a striking impact on the development of spirituality, of Origenism, and of the spiritual interpretation of the Bible in Greek, Syriac, and Latin Christianity. This English translation of the most complete Syriac version of Kephalaia Gnostika makes Evagrius Ponticus's thoughts concerning reality, God, protology, eschatology, anthropology, and allegorical exegesis of Scripture widely available.

Dragon's wine and angel's bread : the teaching of Evagrius Ponticus on anger and meekness by Evagrius( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
"Evagrius Ponticus (343-399 AD), an influential writer among the early Christian monks, spent sixteen years in the desert of Egypt, mostly at Kellia (the Cells). He was a disciple of the two Macarii - saints of Egypt and of Alexandria - under whose guidance he became a "philosopher," one who writes about the Christian life." "This study of Evagrius' writings on anger, and its causes, consequences and cures, offers useful spiritual insight with practical applications for the post-modern reader. Drawing from Evagrius' voluminous writings, the author examines the stirrings of the human heart, deftly diagnosing the souces of overblown and wayward anger."--Jacket
The mind's long journey to the Holy Trinity : the Ad monachos of Evagrius Ponticus by Evagrius( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
À Euloge : les vices opposés aux vertus by Evagrius( Book )
6 editions published in 2017 in French and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 99 libraries worldwide
"La lutte contre les vices : tel est l'objet principal du traité adressé par Évagre, sans doute peu avant 394, à un destinataire mal connu, nommé Euloge. L'homme de lettres, né dans le Pont et devenu ermite en Égypte, y invite au discernement des "pensées" envoyées par les démons pour troubler la quiétude contemplative de celui qui s'est retiré loin de l'agitation du monde. Offrant le témoignage de son expérience personnelle et celui de quelques apophtegmes, le " philosophe du désert " prône ainsi l'impassibilité inspirée du stoïcisme dont il est pétri, tout en dépassant celui-ci grâce à la relation à Dieu et aux autres. Le petit opuscule qui fait suite à Euloge dans les manuscrits, Les Vices opposés aux vertus, lui sert en quelque sorte de guide de lecture. Dans cette série de défi nitions pittoresques, en deux ou trois mots Évagre saisit chacun des neuf vices, chacune des neuf vertus qu'il distingue. Connu pour avoir, par ailleurs, dressé une liste de huit péchés devenue classique en Orient - mais réduite à sept en Occident -, il livre ici la quintessence de son enseignement et, sous une forme quasiment poétique, une rumination spirituelle sur l'acquisition des vertus. Le texte édité ici est fondé sur l'étude de l'ensemble de la tradition manuscrite et des nombreuses traductions en langues orientales qui ont été faites de ces deux traités."--
