"This book is a study of Cassian's life, monastic writings, and spiritual theology. Drawing on both his own experience as a monk and his familiarity with the fundamental literary sources, author Columba Stewart establishes Cassian's credibility as a teacher. He pays particular attention to Cassian's view of the monastic journey in eschatological perspective, his teaching on continence and chastity, the Christological basis of biblical interpretation and prayer, his method of unceasing prayer, and his integration of ecstatic experience with an Evagrian theology of prayer. The first major study of Cassian to be published in twenty years, this book will be invaluable to students and scholars of early Christianity and the history of spirituality, as well as to monastic women and men.
