This is an exquisite collection of short writings of the early Christian mystics presented as a programme of spiritual study. This unique anthology consists of 300 short meditations, rendered in simple free verse, by Christian contemplatives from the fourth to the eleventh centuries. The book features teachings of the Desert Fathers, the legendary monks who fled city life in order to dedicate themselves to a life of contemplation.
