The praktikos. Chapters on prayer by Evagrius( Book )
14 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and held by 434 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 Ponticus, Ad monachos by Evagrius( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 345 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]

Evagrius Ponticus is an increasingly important figure in the scholarship of early Christianity, particularly regarding monasticism, mysticism and the general relationship of Christian theology to classical philosophy. His surviving works constitute probably the largest corpus of writings from any Desert Farther. Evagrius Ponticus provides the teaching of an early master of asceticism, not as filtered through a disciple, but as he himself propounded it. This volume will provide a valuable frame of reference for students of the Desert Fathers, of Origen and his legacy, and indeed of the Greek mystical tradition

Talking back : a monastic handbook for combating demons by Evagrius( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 159 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

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 109 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
