Talking back : a monastic handbook for combating demons by Evagrius( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 153 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

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 107 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." --Book Jacket
