Evagrius and His Legacy
. South Bend: University of Notre Dame Press, 2016.
This book brings together essays by eminent scholars who explore selected aspects of Evagrius’s life and times and address his far-flung and controversial but long-lasting influence on Latin, Byzantine, and Syriac cultures in antiquity and the Middle Ages. Touching on points relevant to theology, philosophy, history, patristics, literary studies, and manuscript studies, Evagrius and His Legacy is also intended to catalyze further study of Evagrius within as large a context as possible.

2015WhiteIncense and Separable Virtues: Evagrius of Pontus on Exodus 30:34-37presentation
White, Devin. “Incense and Separable Virtues: Evagrius of Pontus on Exodus 30:34–37.” Lecture, Patristic, Medieval and Renaissance Studies Conference, Villanova University, 2015
My task today is to examine the virtue theory of Evagrius of Pontus, as he describes it in the first four chapters of his celebrated 153 Chapters on Prayer. Most scholars agree that Evagrius correlates pure prayer with the perfect achievement of virtue, in which all four of the traditional cardinal virtues—wisdom, temperance, courage, and justice—are essentially unified in the soul of the monk; these scholars regularly suggest that Evagrius learned this theory of virtue from Gregory Nazianzen. In the next few minutes, I will attempt to add nuance to each of these assertions. I argue that in Chapters on Prayer 1-4, Evagrius not only discusses the importance of the full presence of the virtues, but also presents the virtues as discrete entities which may be separated one from another; additionally, I will suggest that he may have learned his virtue theory not from Gregory Nazianzen, but from Gregory of Nyssa. My argument will proceed in four steps. First, I will briefly survey the philosophical virtue theories on which Evagrius may have drawn. Second, I will review the text of On Prayer 1-4 and summarize its interpretation in modern scholarship. Third, I will argue that while Evagrius believed that the virtues ought to comprise a unified whole, they could in fact be separated from each other; this, I suggest, is the natural implication of his citation of Exodus 30:34-35, 37. Fourth and finally, I will suggest some ways in which Evagrius’s description of the virtues in the Chapters on Prayer resembles Gregory of Nyssa’s virtue theory.

2015GibbonsPassions, Pleasures, and Perceptions: Rethinking Evagrius Ponticus on Mental RepresentationjournalArticle
Gibbons, Kathleen. “Passions, Pleasures, and Perceptions: Rethinking Evagrius Ponticus on Mental Representation.” “” (2015): 297–330.
Evagrius Ponticus’s theory of the eight bad thoughts has often been read as indebted to Stoic ideas of mental representation. This is in part, however, a consequence of the fact that the significance of φαντασία to Plato’s own thought has only recently begun to receive adequate attention. In this paper, I explore how recent studies into Plato’s theory of passion help illuminate Evagrius’s ideas about the relationship between affect and mental representation. Interpreting Evagrius’s treatment of passion as perspectival (rather than judgmental) helps illuminate his understanding of the relationship between the ascetic and contemplative lives and his conception of selfhood.

Christe Eleison! The Invocation of Christ in Eastern Monastic Psalmody c.350–450
. Studies in Eastern Orthodoxy Book 2. Bern, Switerland: Peter Lang, 2014.
For centuries the Jesus Prayer has been leading Orthodox Christians beyond the language of liturgy and the representations of iconography into the wordless, imageless stillness of the mystery of God. In more recent years it has been helping a growing number of Western Christians to find a deeper relationship with God through the continual rhythmic repetition of a short prayer which, by general agreement, first emerged from the desert spirituality of early monasticism. In this study James Wellington explores the understanding and practice of the psalmody which underpinned this spirituality. By means of an investigation of the importance of psalmody in desert monasticism, an exploration of the influence of Evagrius of Pontus and a thorough examination of selected psalm-commentaries in circulation in the East at this time, he reveals a monastic culture which was particularly conducive to the emergence of a Christ-centred invocatory prayer.

Henri Crouzel, in his classical book on Origen, says that the fall of souls was caused by acedia as displease for the contemplation (Origène [P. Lethielleux, Paris, 1985], 273). Marguerite Harl analyses deeply the expression κόρον λαβεῖν in the De principiis, in F. L. Cross (ed.), Studia Patristica VIII, Texte und Untersuchungen 93 [Akademie Verlag, Berlin, 1966] 373-405). This paper aims to ratify some of Harl's assertions and compare them with Evagrius Ponticus' works who, in Kephalaia gnostica, repeats Origen's assertion. The deep and complete evagrius' theorization on sloth adds interesting nuances to the discussion. -pub

Evagrius Ponticus is one of the most significant representatives of ancient Christian ascetic tradition of the East. His work had a strong impact on theology and Christian ascetic practice in the past centuries. However, the theological basis of his asceticism is certainly not unquestionable. In this article the author examines Evagrius’s theological position and its relation to his asceticism, so that his work could be appropriately evaluated.

Michelson, David.
The Practical Christology of Philoxenos of Mabbug
. Oxford Early Christian Studies. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014.
The first work in English solely focused on the theology of Philoxenos of Mabbug, whose works are the largest surviving single corpus in all of Syriac literature Offers a new approach to the theological disputes over Christology with particular attention to miaphysite/ monophysite perspective, an aspect of the controversy that has often proved opaque in previous scholarship Connects early Christian doctrinal controversies to contexts of religious practice, such as asceticism and liturgy Philoxenos of Mabbug (c. 440-523) was a prolific late-antique theologian and polemicist who produced the largest literary corpus to have survived in Syriac. He earned a reputation as the leading Syriac opponent of the Council of Chalcedon (451) and its two-nature Christology. In The Practical Christology of Philoxenos of Mabbug, David A. Michelson offers a new understanding of Philoxenos one-nature Christology by interpreting the post-Chalcedonian doctrinal disputes through a holistic analysis of Philoxenos life and works. Michelsons close reading of the entire Philoxenian corpus reveals a miaphysite perspective on the Christological controversies in which the intellectual clash was not primarily over defining doctrine. As a metropolitan bishop, sponsor of a revised New Testament, and monastic theologian, Philoxenos was principally concerned with matters of Christian praxis and the ascetic pursuit of divine knowledge. This book shows how he opposed Chalcedonian Christology because he was convinced its intellectual theological method was inimical to the mystical pursuit of divine knowledge through liturgical and ascetic practice. Philoxenos polemical engagement drew upon a theological epistemology that he had adapted from Pro-Nicene theologians including Ephrem, the Cappadocians, and Evagrius. Philoxenos argued that divine knowledge was not to be achieved through human understanding or doctrinal inquiry. Instead, true divine knowledge was attained through practice, specifically contemplation, reading of scripture, participation in the liturgical mysteries, and ascetic discipline. Michelson considers each of these practices in turn to show how Philoxenos thought ofopposition to Chalcedon as part of a larger vision of ascetic and spiritualstruggle. In short, for Philoxenos conflict over Christology was foremost a practical matter.

2014PilatoParticipating in Divine Simplicity: Apophatic Theology and Apatheia in the Thought of Evagrius Ponticusthesis
Pilato, Michael. “Participating in Divine Simplicity: Apophatic Theology and Apatheia in the Thought of Evagrius Ponticus.” thesis. Eden Theological Seminary, 2014.
The purpose of this thesis was to explore how Evagrius’ apophatic approach to the knowledge of God informs his ascetical concept of apatheia, a fusion of doctrinal reflection and spirituality. I examined Evagrius’ texts using the methods of Gadamer and Kierkegaard – literary and philosophical analysis. Evagrius constructed his theology by writing axioms meant to be meditated. I found that Evagrius’ apophatic framework is undergirded by his doctrine of God’s incomprehensibility/indescribability, monist theory of mind, theory of contemplative prayer, and spiritual exegesis of scripture. This involves negating multiple disordered thoughts in order to participate in divine simplicity, in the oneness of God. I concluded that Evagrius’ apophatic, contemplative approach to theology/doctrine facilitates his teaching of apatheia – the practice of negating multiple desires to mystically experience divine union. Essentially in doing so, Evagrius unites mysticism and asceticism, theological construction and spiritual experience. His apophatic asceticism is a fully integrated theology consisting of spiritualized thought and action.

Journal of Early Christian Studies
22, no. 1 (2014): 61–77.
Instead of an extreme asceticism characterized by imperturbability, Evagrius's thinking should rather be characterized by two often overlooked virtues, compunction and compassion, that, together with the other virtues and imperturbability, form the systole and diastole of the monk's life. These make it possiblefor the call of the Prophets and the words of the Psalmist to take up personal residence in each individual, on behalf of others, in the gentle sympathy of divine live. Divine sympathy is, in fact, the model for understanding the range and root of compassion, for it is present in a remarkable way in both piercing repentance for our weakness and loving mercy for others. -pub

Krawiec, Rebecca. “Literacy and Memory in Evagrius’s Monasticism.”
Journal of Early Christian Studies
21, no. 3 (2013): 363–390.
his paper examines Evagrius’s monastic literacy, that is, his views on how to write and read monastic texts, in order to argue for the central role of memory in that literacy. Evagrius’s textuality is Origenist because of the hierarchical relationship between material text and spiritual meaning; that textuality shapes Evagrius’s identity as a monastic writer and the esoteric quality of reading in his monastic community. A collective monastic memory is one element that is necessary to read his texts properly, namely, in a way that will allow access to the spiritual strength in the text. Yet memory, like texts, engages the same tension between corporeal reality and immaterial goals that is at the heart of Evagrius’s monasticism. The relationship between literacy and monasticism shapes the memory of Evagrius in the works of two of his followers, Palladius and John Cassian.

Muehlberger, Ellen.
Angels in Late Ancient Christianity
. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013.
Ellen Muehlberger explores the diverse and inventive ideas Christians held about angels in late antiquity. During the fourth and fifth centuries, Christians began experimenting with new modes of piety, adapting longstanding forms of public authority to Christian leadership and advancing novel ways of cultivating body and mind to further the progress of individual Christians. Muehlberger argues that in practicing these new modes of piety, Christians developed new ways of thinking about angels. The book begins with a detailed examination of the two most popular discourses about angels that developed in late antiquity. In the first, delineated by Christians cultivating certain kinds of ascetic practices, angels were one type of being among many in a shifting universe, and their primary purpose was to guard and to guide Christians. In the other, articulated by urban Christian leaders in contest with one another, angels were morally stable characters described in the emerging canon of Scripture, available to enable readers to render Scripture coherent with emerging theological positions. Muehlberger goes on to show how these two discourses did not remain isolated in separate spheres of cultivation and contestation, but influenced one another and the wider Christian culture. She offers in-depth analysis of popular biographies written in late antiquity, of the community standards of emerging monastic communities, and of the training programs developed to prepare Christians to participate in ritual, demonstrating that new ideas about angels shaped and directed the formation of the definitive institutions of late antiquity. Angels in Late Ancient Christianity is a meticulous and thorough study of early Christian ideas about angels, but it also offers a different perspective on late ancient Christian history, arguing that angels were central rather than peripheral to the emergence of Christian institutions and Christian culture in late antiquity. Note- The first chapter compares Evagrius and Augustine's views on angels.

Casiday, Augustine. “Translation, Controversies, and Adaptations at St Sabas Monastery during the Sixth Century.”
The Journal of Medieval Monastic Studies
2 (2013): .
This article identifies two texts from St Sabas Monastery that give important information about theological crises that occured there during the sixth century: Evagrius Ponticus's *Gnostic Chapters* as well as the *Book of Cassian the Monk*. The importance of the monastery as a centre of spiritual and theological authority is explained, before our sources of information are critically surveyed. Counter to the arguments of their respective editors, I argue that the two texts studied here should be seen to correct the bias of a major source for information about the crises (Cyril of Schythopolis's monastic lives), rather than to corroborate that bias.

The author considers the basic ideas of the passions in the writings of these two authors and discusses the similarities and differences between their teachings, as well as the compatibility of the Macarian teaching on the passions with the Evagrian schema of eight generic thoughts. The comparative analysis shows that the Macarian and Evagrian lists of passions, though different, are not incompatible. They represent different approaches and emphases, rather than a disagreement in principles between the two ascetic writers.

Evagrio Póntico ha sido uno de los teorizadores más importantes de la Patrística sobre la acedia, logismos al que otorga un enorme peso en el desarrollo de la vida espiritual. Se trata de un fenómeno que no afecta de modo exclusivo a los monjes y que ocupa también un lugar en el proceso de maduración psicológica de la persona. Los demonios y los ángeles poseen un papel protagónico en la configuración y la evolución de la acedia. Y, si el propósito de los demonios es impedir que el hombre pueda conocer (Kepahalaia gnostica III, 41), la acedia deberá ser entonces un cierto “desconocimiento” o, más bien, el conocimiento de una realidad ficticia, o metarealidad, en la cual ellos puedan adquirir el dominio del alma. El propósito de esta comunicación es mostrar de qué modo la acción de los demonios y de los ángeles se imbrica en el desarrollo acedioso del alma.

57 (2013): 51–74.
Part of Evagrius of Ponticus on Contemplation, volume 5 of the published papers from the Sixteenth&nbsp; International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 2011. For Evagrius, both physical and psychological transformation are integral to spiritual transformation. A human being is essentially a nous that, as image of the Triune God, is itself triune, the anthropological triad of spirit, soul and body and the psychological triad of logistikon, thumos and epithumêtikon being its fragmented, post-lapsarian forms. All three parts of the human soul are, accordingly, in some sense nous, and the soul is the form of the body. The predominance of epithumia characteristic of the human soul is reflected in a predominantly earthy, ‘thick’ and contracted bodily ‘mixture’ which by means of diet can be transmuted to a lighter, more expansive constitution. This ‘passage of the body from the bad to the superior quality’ is reflected in that of the soul from passibility to impassibility and of the nous from ignorance to knowledge. Thus diet establishes the physical ground for the restoration of unity to the ‘trinity of ours’ that is the imago Dei, as body and soul are ‘raised to the order of the nous’ and the spiritual body emerges from the ‘triple resurrection’ of body, soul and spirit. The increasing expansiveness of the body’s mixture is the correlate of the ‘expansion of the heart’ and is reflected phenomenologically in the passage of the nous into ever greater spaciousness and inclusivity as it ‘approaches the unconcealed Divinity in itself.’ -pub

Can moral theories of the kind Evagrius Ponticus upheld be useful today? Is his ethics one of many other virtue ethical theories or is it something else entirely? I argue that Evagrius’s theory of virtue is an instance of traditional Christian moral theory. Moreover, as a Christian theory, Evagrius’s moral system stands apart from non-Christian moral theories, virtue, consequentialist and deontological. I further maintain that his morality is robust, because it is able to undercut some of the strongest critiques generally made against moral theories: those of inconsistency and selfishness. It is also successful, because it produced fertile cultural movements that continue at present. I conclude, however, that its theistic, kenotic and inverted nature presents a direct challenge to ethical assumptions of today. -pub

2013RamelliHarmony between Arkhē and Telos in Patristic Platonism and the Imagery of Astronomical Harmony Applied to Apokatastasis 1journalArticle
Ramelli, Ilaria. “Harmony between Arkhē and Telos in Patristic Platonism and the Imagery of Astronomical Harmony Applied to Apokatastasis 1.”
The International Journal of the Platonic Tradition
7, no. 1 (2013): 1–49.
This study investigates the idea of harmony as a protological and eschatological principle in three outstanding Patristic philosophers, well steeped in the Platonic tradition: Origen, Gregory Nyssen, and Evagrius. All of them attached an extraordinary importance to harmony, homonoia, and unity in the arkhē and, even more, in the telos. This ideal is opposed to the disagreement/dispersion of rational creatures’ acts of volition after their fall and before the eventual apokatastasis. These Christian Platonists are among the strongest supporters of the final universal restoration. Their reflection on the unity-multiplicity dialectic, which parallels that between harmony and disorder/discord/dissonance, is informed by the Platonic tradition. In Gregory, the idea of harmony assumes musical connotations, especially in relation to the telos. In this connection, I examine the relationship between their notion of harmony in the arkhē and telos and Plotinus’ concept of harmony. Plotinus was well known to Gregory, the author of a Christianized version of Plato’s Phaedo in which apokatastasis is prominent. Origen, whose readings included many Middle-Platonic and Neo-Pythagorean texts, in Alexandria attended the classes of the “proto-Neoplatonist” Ammonius, who was also Plotinus’ teacher. A wide-ranging methodical investigation of the relation between Origen’s and Plotinus’ philosophical thoughts is still a notable desideratum. Finally, I concentrate on the concept of harmony in astronomy as a metaphor for intellectual harmony and apokatastasis in Patristic Platonism, especially in Evagrius’ Kephalaia Gnōstika. The noun apokatastasis was used in an astronomical sense, and employed in Stoicism for the conclusion of a cosmic cycle. Evagrius, who loved astronomical metaphors, focussed a kephalaion on a wordplay—which escaped Guillaumont and all other scholars—concerning the astronomical meaning of apokatastasis, thus embedding his theory of the eventual restoration in an allegorical framework that rests on a notion of astronomical harmony. A strong case is made in this connection that Evagrius was elaborating on Plato’s pivotal link between cosmological (astronomical) and intellectual harmony, and was aware that the Stoic theory of cosmological apokatastasis drew on Plato. -au

would try to se if Evagrius in his anthropology identified the rational part of soul, so called logistikon with the nous. Since there is a lot of confusion among scholars, see f.or ex in the texts of A, Gaullaumont and P. Gehin we have different explanations so I think it would be useful to precise this point of Evagrian doctrine.
2013CattoiAn Evagrian ὑπόστασις? Leontios of Byzantium and the 'Composite Subjectivity' of the Person of ChristjournalArticle
Cattoi, Thomas. “An Evagrian ὑπόστασις? Leontios of Byzantium and the 'Composite Subjectivity' of the Person of Christ.”
Studia Patristica
68 (2013): 133–148.
In his treatise Contra Nestorianos et Eutychianos, Leontios of Byzantium articulates his own Christological vision, attempting to show how the Chalcedonian paradigm offers an antidote to the evacuation of the incarnation implicit in aphthartodocetism, but also to the Nestorian tendencies of authors such as Theodore of Mopsuestia. Leontios challenges the Monophysite understanding of the incarnation as a “natural union” (henōsis physikē), insisting rather that soul and body are ontologically perfect in themselves, and preferring to use the term “essential union” (henōsis ousiōdes) to characterize the unity between divinity and humanity in the person of Christ. While Leontios asserts the physical reality of Christ’s body as well as the presence of a single subject in the person of Christ, this is accomplished by way of retrieving a surreptitiously Evagrian understanding of the relationship between the eternal Logos and Christ’s own humanity. The reason why Leontios was able to reintroduce elements of Origenist anthropology behind the bastions of Chalcedonian Christology was his skilful reliance on the semantic polyvalence of the term hypostasis, which could denote a principle of subjectivity or a composite reality formed of two distinct natures. While the Chalcedonian paradigm relied on the former meaning of the term in line with the Cappadocian Fathers, and viewed the hypostasis of the eternal Word as Christ’s own principle of subjectivity, Leontios’ vision reserved the term hypostasis for the reality that comes into existence at the moment of the incarnation and that can be defined by specific physical characteristics. The purpose of this paper is to reassess Leontios’ notion of hypostasis in Contra Nestorianos et Eutychianos, highlighting the points of contact, as well as the differences, between Leontios’ (crypto-Evagrian?) relational understanding of the concept, and its more “normative” reading -denoting personhood- that underpinned the Chalcedonian definition.

I examine the doctrine of the soul, its composition, origin and destiny, in some eminent Christian Platonists: Origin, with his doctrine of the logika, the Christian Middle Platonist Bardaisan of Edessa, Gregory of Nyssa, Evagrius and Adamantius in the Dialogue of Adamentius, ( which I suspect to include more of Origen's thought than is commonly assumed). I investigate how their psychology is related to the themes of creation and apokatastasis, a doctrine that, not accidently, is shared by them all, but that does not presuppose a belief in the 'preexistence of souls'.A common pattern emerges, which renders the label 'preexistence of souls' inadequate.From this research it results that the Dialogue of Adamentius, Gregory, and Evagrius are closer to Origen's authentic thought on the logika and their spiritual bodies between protology and eschatology than is usually assumed. Gregory, I argue, did not criticise Origen's purported preexistence of souls. As for Bardaisan, more and more clues point to a relationship with Origen's thought and his tradition.

This ultimately joyful work is one of the few books available in English to deal exclusively with the problem of despondency—acedia—and how it can be overcome. Bunge analyzes the views of Evagrius Ponticus, the famous "philosopher of the desert," on the dangers of acedia. Evagrius develops a sophisticated psychology which remains beneficial to us today. Indeed, this 4th-century Desert Father writes for Christians everywhere: for those in modern deserts—the city—and for those subject to silent despair. This is a companion book to Dragon's Wine and Angel's Bread (SVS Press, 2009).

Chapter 2: Contact, or the Blue Sapphire of the Mind

For Evagrius and many other early Christian monks, Mt. Sinai was a symbol of a certain intimacy with God the contemplative might hope to realize on the inner journey. The evocation of the mountain and the sapphire-blue tiles remains an important reminder of the intricate relationship that exists between outer and inner landscapes, and of the way the physical landscape can spark thought, open the imagination, and deepen awareness. The mountain became a place toward which the monk could direct his gaze, a point of orientation, an emblem of the awesome and charged space of his own inner life. This chapter argues that the contemplative vision arising from the ancient Christian monastic world expresses a hunger still present and familiar to us at the dawn of the twenty-first century: the longing to live with an awareness of the whole. And it speaks to the promise inherent in all great spiritual traditions of the world, that the human mind (or heart or soul) is capable of expanding and deepening to such an extent that it becomes possible to incorporate everything and to be incorporated into everything: to exist and know oneself as existing within the whole. -pub

Bradford, David T. “Evagrius Ponticus and the Psychology of 'Natural Contemplation'.”
Studies in Spirituality
22 (2012): 109–125.
Evagrius was the first ascetical theologian of the Christian tradition and one of its most influential. His mystical theology has been widely discussed with the exception of his writings on ‘natural contemplation’ (theoria physike). Traditional spiritual writings regularly mention natural contemplation but provide relatively few details and little practical exposition. This study has nine sections. The first is concerned with textual sources. The second situates natural contemplation in Evagrius’s outline of the stages of the ascetic life. The third shows that the two forms of natural contemplation are aspects of a single cognitive process. The fourth is focused on psychological insights mediated through natural contemplation. The types of contemplative objects are reviewed in the fifth section, and the mystic’s identification with the objects is discussed in the sixth. The seventh section highlights contemplation’s effect of inhibiting sensory perception. The eighth is concerned with extraordinary spatial perceptions intrinsic to contemplation. The temporal duration of the two forms of natural contemplation is considered in the final section. This is the first psychological analysis of natural contemplation.

20, no. 1 (2012): 113–139.

The De fide or Epistula fidei by Evagrius is widely thought to have been written from Constantinople around 381 to Christians back home, in Pontus. In this article I revive and refine a thesis advanced in 1923 by Melcher, that the letter was written in fact to Constantinople, after Evagrius fled the city in 382. Building on Melcher’s insights, I argue that Evagrius wrote the letter from Jerusalem or Egypt, as a monk, sometime in 383 or later. Thus, the letter is not really a defense of his actions, even though he explains why he fled Constantinople. It is rather a pastoral letter, draped in the spiritual and intellectual mantle of Gregory—an attack on the heresies in the city and a demonstration to the orthodox of a higher epistemology. Revising the date and audience of the Epistula fidei permits new insights into the development of Evagrius’s theology, the state of Constantinople under Nectarius, and the contested inheritance of Gregory of Nazianzus. -pub

. Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae. Leiden and Boston: Brill, 2012.

This is a companion volume to the author's monograph The Real Cassian Revisited, presenting primary sources in their original language along with facing translation.

Collectively, the two volumes argue that the putative early fifth-century writer John Cassian is a late Latin forgery, and that the Latin texts that survive under his name are interpolated translations of the original Greek, which survives in manuscript 573 from the Monastery of the Metamorphosis (Meteoron) in Greece. The true author of the treatises is a hitherto unknown sixth century Origenist polymath monk, Cassian the Sabaite.

Tzamalikos's thesis has significant import for studies Evagrius, in that it locates a major source of Evagrius's teaching from a late fourth and early fifth century Latin milieu into a six-century Greek one, a time and place where Evagrius's legacy was hotly contested, and for which we have little surviving evidence.

Reviews (listed below) have been overall skeptical.

2011EkmanOn the Texture of an Invisible God: Biblical Exegesis and Imageless Prayer in Evagrius Ponticusthesis
Ekman, Benjamin. “On the Texture of an Invisible God: Biblical Exegesis and Imageless Prayer in Evagrius Ponticus.” MPhil. University of Wales, 2011.

Evagrius Ponticus (345-399) has been described as the teacher of prayer par excellence for the Greek Christian tradition. Central to his understanding of prayer is his recurring emphasis on the rejection of mental “images” of God during prayer. Evagrius wants the person at prayer to meet God without mediators in a vision of formless light. In modern accounts of his theology this tendency has often been described as a philosophical theology which devalues the body and the created order. Around the time of Evagrius’ life, a controversy flared up in Egypt regarding the question whether one should conceive of God as having an anthropomorphic bodily form. Many modern scholars have seen Evagrius’ focus on “imageless” prayer as a cause of, or response to, this debate. The “anthropomorphite” monks have been described as rustic biblical literalists in stark contrast to the spiritualising tradition represented by monks like Evagrius. In this project we show that Evagrius placed great emphasis on meditation and commentary on the Bible in his understanding of the spiritual life of monks. Evagrius expected that a monk who was growing in ascetic purity and wisdom should devote his time to spiritual interpretation of the Scriptures, through which he could contemplate the spiritual “reasons” (logoi) of the created world, a process he referred to as theōria phusikē, natural contemplation. Evagrius thus wanted the monk to both contemplate God’s creation and seek intimate knowledge of God’s self. In this project we show how Evagrius used biblical motifs to elaborate his understanding of the contemplative life. One of the biblical images that Evagrius is most fond of is the theophany on Mount Sinai as described in the book of Exodus; language from this episode often appears in his description of the most elevated forms of prayer. We show that for Evagrius, the Exodus narrative as a whole functions as a central organising metaphor for how he understands the process leading from vice to virtue and deepened knowledge of the world and its Creator. We also show that his emphasis on “imageless” prayer should be understood against the background of the prominent place that theōria phusikē had in his understanding of the monastic life. We suggest that Evagrius perceived a danger in moving too quickly from Scripture-based phusikē to “imageless” prayer before one was sufficiently prepared for this form of prayer. But we also show that he stressed that even the monk who had reached “imageless” prayer should seek out the logoi of creation that reveal to him the “face of God,” especially through meditation on the words of Scripture. We argue that this close relationship between phusikē and “imageless” prayer in Evagrius’ theology should serve as a corrective of descriptions of his understanding of prayer that emphasise only the “iconoclastic” language found in his treatises. -pub

The Philokalia and the Inner Life on Passions and Prayer
. London: James Clarke and Co, 2011.
The Philokalia, published in Venice in 1782, is an anthology of patristic writings from the Eastern Church spanning the fourth to the fifteenth centuries, and which has been the subsequent focus of a significant revival in Orthodox spirituality. It presents an understanding of psychology and mental life which is significantly different to that usually encountered in Western Christianity. It also presents accounts of both mental wellbeing and the pathologies of the mind or soul which are radically different to contemporary secular accounts and yet which also find remarkable points of similarity with contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches, such as cognitive therapy. This book provides an introduction to the history of the Philokalia and the philosophical, anthropological and theological influences that contributed to its formation. It presents a critical account of the pathologies of the soul, the remedies for these pathologies, and the therapeutic goals as portrayed by the authors of the Philokalia. It then offers a critical engagement of this material with a contemporary understanding of psychotherapy. Finally, it raises important questions about the relationship between thoughts and prayer. Written with an international academic readership in mind, the book is also accessible to a more general readership and anyone interested in Christian theology, particularly in relation to mental health issues, addictions and psychotherapy. Note- Evagrius is extensively referenced.

This study is an 11-part investigation of the psychology and neuropsychology of early Christian asceticism as represented by Evagrius Ponticus (AD 345–399), the tradition's first ascetical theologian and possibly its most influential. Evagrius's biography is reviewed in the first section. The living circumstances and perceptual consequences of desert asceticism are considered in the second. Penitence, dispassion, and the mysticism of “pure prayer” are discussed in the third. Austerities are addressed in the fourth section, particularly fasting, prostrations, and prolonged standing. Ascetical perspectives on sleep, dreams, and the hypnogogic state are analyzed in the fifth. The depressive syndrome of acedia is discussed in the sixth. Evagrius's reports of auditory, olfactory, and visual hallucinations are analyzed in the seventh. Multiple complementary interpretations of demonic phenomena are developed in the eighth section. Evagrius's psychotherapy for anger is reviewed in the ninth. Interpersonal relations among ascetics are considered in the tenth section. The study concludes with a summary.

Stewart, Columba. “Evagrius Ponticus and the Eastern Monastic Tradition on the Intellect and the Passions.” “” (2011): 263–275.

Evagrius Ponticus (c. 345–399) combined the resources of Hellenistic philosophy, the theologies of Origen and the Cappadocians, and Egyptian monastic practice to create a comprehensive view of spiritual development, within which he placed a sophisticated study of the human passions. His main tools in this study were an adapted version of Platonic tripartite anthropology and his own system of eight “generic thoughts.” Freedom from control by irrational passions would allow a monk to gain deeper insight into the meaning of Scripture, experience communion with God in “pure prayer,” and love other people in freedom. Evagrius' influence on later eastern and western Christian traditions was profound, though often obscured by his controversial reputation. -pub

2011GibbonsVice and Self Examination in the Christian Desert: An Intellectual Historical Reading of Evagrius Ponticusthesis
Gibbons, Kathleen. “Vice and Self Examination in the Christian Desert: An Intellectual Historical Reading of Evagrius Ponticus.” thesis. University of Toronto, 2011.
This thesis offers an analysis of the vice tradition of the fourth-century monk Evagrius Ponticus.sWhile Evagrius, like others before him, understands that virtue and vice have an affective component, and that these affections are reactions to mental images, for Evagrius these images aresveridically thinner than what we find in earlier discussions of passion in ancient philosophy. As a result, vice is less a matter of false reasoning andsfalse perception than it is a matter of the excessive dwelling on representations connected with events of one’s personal history, to the point that the passions aroused at the time of those events become globalized dispositions. Evagrius’s concern withshow memories lead us to dwell on these “bad thoughts” proves to be point of contact with psychoanaly which many modern authors, including Michel Foucault, have detected; yet a closesanalysis of what Evagrius takes to be involved in self-examination revealssthat Foucault’s account of the “technologies of the self” fails to take into account Evagrius’s interest in the distinction between the endowed self, that self which is examined, and the ideal self, the goal of the ascetic activity. -pub

It is widely accepted that Evagrius Ponticus had a large influence on the writings of John Cassian. Cassian’s use of the eight vices compiled by Evagrius are a clear indica-tion of this influence. Many scholars also deem Cassian’s demonology to be an inherit-ance of Evagrius, but a closer look shows how Cassian both inherits and developsEvagrian concepts. An important part of his demonology is his conception of the personof the Devil. Cassian’s origin story of the Devil vastly departs from Evagrius’ makingthe role of the Devil in either theologian’s writings serve a different purpose and openup questions concerning Evagrius’ influence on Cassian.

In this article, an invitation is given to modern practitioners and thinkers on missionary tentmaking - especially those from the majority world- to reflect on the apparent tentmaking approach of the fourth-century monk Evagrius of Pontus (c. 345-399). Though not a missionary himself, Evagrius proved to be innovative in his approach to work, which sustained his primary spiritual calling- monasticism. After exploring the necessity and context for his manual labor, his theology of work and the relationship between physical and spiritual labor will be considered. Finally, some suggestions for applying Evagrius' tentmaking principles will be offered.

Byzantine Theology and Its Philosophical Background
. Edited by Antonio Rigo, pp. 17–31. Studies in Byzantine History and Civilization 4. Turnhout: Brepols, 2011.

The Chapters on Prayer unanimously ascribed by the Byzantine tradition to a certain Nilus were attributed convincingly to Evagrius Ponticus by Irénée Hausherr. Based on a phrase in ch. 110 “Live in accordance with the intellect”, this contribution intends to examine the well refined conception of Evagrius about prayer: True prayer should be related to the highest activities of the intellect and should require an overflow of the normal cognitive activity. On this point, his teaching is in a particular tributary of Platonism and of all the Alexandrian-Patristic tradition (Clement of Alexandria, Origen). But by asserting that this eminent activity doubles itself through an experience of enlightenment, Evagrius blew a breach in that what, in a first approach, could be seen as an absolute rejection of every image and representation. Because of the topic of the intelligible light, of its reality and its significance, our text was used in the 14th century during the Palamite controversy, when every part intends to find citations in favour of its own position. -pub

This article explains why Evagrius seemingly neglects the Holy Spirit in his ascetical writings, even though we know from doctrinal texts that he held a robust pneumatology. This paucity of Spirit references confused twentieth-century scholars, who dismissed Evagrius as having unorthodox positions regarding the Trinity. An analysis of Evagrius's references to the angels and the Spirit, however, shows that Evagrius's silence regarding the Spirit is due to his increased attention to the roles that the angels play in the beginning stages of the ascetic life. As mediators, the angels assist the monks who are in the beginning stages of the ascetic life while the Spirit interacts with those who are in more advanced stages. -pub

Acedia and depression. A contribution for an historical reconstruction.<br /> <br /> The many histories of depression that have been written in the last decades dedicate, in my opinion, few pages to the study of an important precedent of this pathology that took place in closed religious ambiences of the first centuries of the Christianity and, later, during the Middle Ages. I refer to the spiritual phenomenon named acedia and that was object of study of remarkable personages of these times. The manifestation of the same phenomenon will be assimilated to those of the melancholy during the modernity and will center the attention not only of physicians but also of writers.<br /> The purpose of this paper is to delineate some fundamental elements of the acedia and its close relationship with today’s depression, from an approach that bears in mind principally the writings of the Christian patristic and medieval authors and its projections into the Modern Ages. -pub

Las numerosas historias de la depresión que se han escrito en las últimas décadas dedican, a mi juicio, pocas páginas al estudio de un importante antecedente de esta patología que tuvo lugar en ámbitos religiosos cerrados propios de los primeros siglos del cristianismo y, más adelante, durante la Edad Media.

Las manifestaciones de este fenómeno se asimilarán a las de la melancolía durante la modernidad y centrará la atención no solo de médicos sino también de literatos.<br />El objeto de este artículo es delinear algunos elementos fundamentales de la acedia y sus estrechas relaciones con lo que hoy denominamos depresión, a través de una aproximación que tenga en cuenta principalmente los escritos de los autores cristianos patrísticos y medievales y sus proyecciones en la época moderna. -pub

El autor nos presenta la acedia y el transitus monástico en el siglo XII. Era frecuente entonces, encontrarse con casos como el de Adan Scott, que como la mayoría de los que optaban por la vida monástica, estaba marcada por el deseo y la tendencia a la perfección. Se trataba, indudablemente, de una vida en tensión. ¿Qué podía ocurrir, sin embargo, cuando luego de varios años de vida religiosa, se descubría que el estado de perfección que se buscaba originariamente estaba aún lejano? O, aún más, ¿qué reacción podía suscitarse en la psicología del monje cuando caía en la cuenta que las tentaciones y los ataques que sufría en su estado de vida actual eran mucho más duros que los que debía enfrentar en la vida del mundo? Sobrevendría, seguramente, una etapa de fuerte frustración, tristeza y desesperanza. Adán relata esta difícil situación, con palabras particularmente dramáticas, en el primer capítulo de su obra Soliloquiorum de instructione animae: «Yo creía que, al renunciar al mundo e ingresar en la vida religiosa, encontraría la paz y el reposo». -pub

Starting from The Temptation of Saint Anthony, Gustave Flaubert’s literary work,and from the situation of its misunderstanding and negative reception which it faced during its time, not to mention the later indifference, we set as the goal of this article the cultural and historic recuperation of the emotion that constitutes the main object of the Flaubertian work. The thesis of this article is that emotions are not ahistorical or atemporal, but typical for a certain period of time, for an epoch or, more precisely, for a historical world. That is the reason why Flaubert’s work was rejected. It presupposed as self – understood a feeling, acedia, which, in fact, had long disappeared from people’s affective horizon. Our main landmark in the reconstruction of this feeling is Evagrius Ponticus. At the end of the article, we contradict Gabriel Bunge, the author of a well-known work on acedia, who defends the atemporality of emotions. An eloquent example of the situation in which a written work can get starting from this presupposition, is the unhappy fate of Flaubert’s The Temptation of Saint Anthony.

As time passed, the polemical imperative faded. By the time of Cassian's Conferences, philosophy as a living alternative to monasticism seems quite remote. ... [T]he most significant monastic affinity with philosophy, as well as the most intense monastic critique of philosophy's ultimate value, is where they competed most keenly, in the cultivation of virtue."

Evagrius Ponticus and Cognitive Science: A Look at Moral Evil and the Thoughts
. Eugene, Or.: Wipf and Stock, 2010.

This study puts the thought of Evagrius Ponticus, a fourth-century theologian, into dialogue with modern cognitive science in regard to the topic of evil, specifically moral evil. Evagrius, in his writings about prayer and ascetic life, addressed the struggle with personal moral evil in terms of the eight "thoughts" or "demons." These "thoughts" were transmitted by John Cassian to the Western church, and later recast by Gregory the Great as the Seven Deadly Sins. Though present understandings of evil appear to differ greatly from those of Evagrius, his wisdom concerning the battle against evil may prove to be of great help even today. Using the work of Pierre Hadot to recover Evagrius' context, and the work of Paul Ricoeur to discuss how we construct descriptions and myths of evil, Evagrius is brought into dialogue with the cognitive sciences. Using current research, especially the work of Eugene d'Aquili and Andrew Newberg, this study reveals the contemporary relevance of Evagrius' approach to combating evil. In addition, the interdisciplinary study of patristics and cognitive science opens the pathway to a better understanding between Christian tradition and the modern sciences. -pub

Evagrius Ponticus was one of the most important and influential spiritual writers in the early Christian church. This author argues that he suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder: in particular, the demonic ‘thoughts’ which he repeatedly describes meet all the criteria for obsessions. If this is true, it offers a new perspective on the relation between pastoral theology and psychiatric disorders: the spiritual tradition which Evagrius helped found may, as a result, have tended to exacerbate such symptoms in others, but it also possessed the resources to address them in a practical way. -pub

Mind, Text, and Commentary: Noetic Exegesis in Origen of Alexandria, Didymus the Blind, and Evagrius Ponticus
. Early Christianity in the Context of Antiquity 6. Frankfurt am Main: Lang, 2010.

Scholarship on early Christian exegesis is full of puzzlement at the commentator's apparent lack of concern for the literal or historical meaning of the text, usually explained as the result of an illegitimate allegorical method. This study comes to grips with the particularities of this type of interpretation by using tools from ethnography and literary criticism. By analysing the commentator's interpretive assumptions and the framework of significances within which the commentaries were produced and read, the author is able to solve a chronic problem in the study of early Christian exegesis. Further, she articulates the social context of the performance of noetic exegesis and its significance for monastic teachers, philosophers, and their audiences. -pub

Study of the transmission of Evagrius's works in Syriac, through the lens of ten manuscripts. Focusing on BL Add. 14578, which contains virtually the entire corpus of Evagrius in Syriac, Géhin explores the way the works were aggregated and disaggregated through time. He compares this 7th-c. MS with later ones, exploring basic ways copyists and compilers reorganized Evagrius's writings. The article concludes with two appendixes: an analysis of the 48 pieces in BL Add. 14578 and a table of the order of Evagrius's works as attested in ten Syriac MSS (following principally the sequence of BL Add. 14578). -jk

The author argues that Martyrius Sahdona in his spirituality and anthropology serves as a bridge between pre-Evagrius Syriac spirituality and the Syriac spirituality that soon came to be dominated by Evagrius. Although Sahdona does not quote from Evagrius, enough conceptual common ground shows at least indirect influence. -jk

The Catalogue of the new Syriac manuscripts of Sinai by Mother Philothea completes the series of inventories devoted to the “New Finds” of 1975 and the previous publication of Sebastian Brock (1995). The current article focuses only on the parchment manuscripts of patristic, monastic or hagiographic content described in the Catalogue. It provides a study of each of them, proposing new identifications of texts and authors, specifying the dates and styles of writing, and finally reconstituting the dismembered manuscripts sometimes scattered throughout Europe. The fragments, the majority of which are of Melkite origin, are a major contribution to the knowledge of this religious community. -pub

Evagrius Ponticus: The Making of a Gnostic
. Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Religion, Theology, and Biblical Studies. Farnham and Burlington: Ashgate, 2009.

Focusing on Evagrius' concept of perfection as the acquisition of spiritual knowledge, this book revisits current perceptions of Evagrius's thought and character by comparing and contrasting him with his contemporaries and predecessors, both Christian and pagan. Ideas of the three 'Cappadocians' and the author of the Macariana, as well as Stoic, Neo-Platonic and earlier Christian writers such as Alcinoos, Plotinus, Clement and Origen, are all explored. Konstantinovsky draws attention to a lack of uniformity in the fourth-century views on the origin of the soul, the body-soul relation, and the eschatological destiny of humankind. Contents: Evagrius in situ : the making of a gnostic -- Knowledge through mental faculties in relation to spiritual knowledge -- Natural contemplation versus knowledge of God's essence -- The intellect's vision of light -- Christology -- The last things. -pub

...Evagrius of Pontus['s]...work on the eight evil thoughts was widely influential in the development of the idea of the Seven Deadly Sins in the Western Spiritual tradition. But those who followed him, from Cassian to Augustine, were more concerned with attributing guilt, and thought in a forensic way. This was very unlike the thought of Evagrius, who concerned himself with questions about how to deal with evil thoughts and temptations in a healing way. Each chapter deals with one of the Thoughts, giving the contemporary background, the biblical and theological background, the teaching of Evagrius and what came after, and its relevance for us today. -pub

Author compares Evagrius and Vasubhandu (the Abbhidharma teacher). In Swedish, short English conclusion. -mv

Vid en första anblick kan buddhismen och kristendomen tyckas utgöra en tydlig dikotomi inom den religiösa sfären, men undersöks saken närmre så märker vi snart att det utöver alla skillnader även finns många likheter. Föreliggande studie har för avsikt att behandla både likheter och skillnader mellan buddhismen och kristendomen i en konkret aspekt – genom att jämföra den kappadokiske asketen Evagrius Ponticus och den indiske buddhistiska tänkaren och författaren Vasubandhu i deras syn på människors upplevelse av världen. För att finna svar i denna fråga har respektive författares behandling av våra sinnen och vår perception undersökts, detta huvudsakligen utifrån Evagrius Kephalaia Gnostika samt Vasubandhus Abhidharma-kosa och Pañcaskandhaka-prakarana. Deras tankar i ämnet presenteras och analyseras var för sig, för att sedan också tas upp i en komparativ diskussion. Resultatet av denna studie visar att tidigare hypoteser om likheter mellan Evagrius och diverse buddhistiska skolor i många fall är tämligen relevanta. Däremot fungerar dessa likheter sällan som bevis för att Evagrius personligen skall ha influerats av indiska lärosystem. De flesta av hans tankar är snarare ett arv av den grekiska kontext i vilken han växte upp. Samtidigt som det alltså finns likheter kan vi också i resultatet se uppenbara skillnader mellan de olika kontexterna. Hypotesen att Evagrius i sitt författande av Kephalaia Gnostika skulle vara direkt påverkad av Vasubandhu eller andra buddhistiska läromästare går alltså utifrån denna studie inte att bekräfta även om likheterna mellan de två många gånger är närvarande. -pub

Evagrius and Gregory: Mind, Soul and Body in the 4th Century
. Ashgate Studies in Philosophy & Theology in Late Antiquity. Farnham and Burlington: Ashgate, 2009.

This book makes accessible, to a wide audience, the thought of Evagrius and Gregory on the mind, soul and body, in the context of ancient philosophy/theology and the Cappadocians generally. Corrigan argues that in these two figures we witness the birth of new forms of thought and science. Evagrius and Gregory are no mere receivers of a monolithic pagan and Christian tradition, but innovative, critical interpreters of the range and limits of cognitive psychology, the soul–body relation, reflexive self-knowledge, personal and human identity and the soul’s practical relation to goodness in the context of human experience and divine self-disclosure. This book provides a critical evaluation of their thought on these major issues and argues that in Evagrius and Gregory we see the important integration of many different concerns that later Christian thought was not always able to balance including: mysticism, asceticism, cognitive science, philosophy, and theology. -pub

Ce travail expose quelques aspects de la psychopathologie telle qu’elle a été évoquée dans la littérature monastique chrétienne des ive–ve siècles. Trois auteurs sont abordés en particulier : Évagre le Pontique (345–399) ; Jean Cassien (360–435) ; Théodore de Pétra ( ?−530). Plus largement, l’étude renvoie aux Apophtegmata Patrum, collection de textes qui recueille les « paroles » ou « déclarations » (c’est le sens grec du mot apophtegme) que des moines expérimentés adressaient à leurs disciples. Trois dimensions de la psychopathologie sont retenues : le rôle de la parole, en particulier dans l’expression spécifique curatio verbi ; l’intérêt psychique de la vie onirique ; la mise en place originale dans le monachisme byzantin du ve siècle d’une structure sociale appropriée d’accueil et de soin de moines présentant des troubles mentaux. Observées à l’aune d’un genre de vie inédit relativement, ces notions de psychologie et de maladie de l’âme, (morbus animae) selon l’expression classique, ne sont pas dépourvues d’intérêt scientifique, d’autant qu’elles sont adossées à une conception de l’homme psychique et des ses difficultés qui laisse présager l’humanisme d’Hegel et des aliénistes. À ce titre, pour le moins, le monachisme chrétien ancien tel qu’il apparaît dans ses écrits, acquiert un droit de cité à explorer dans le cadre d’une histoire de la psychopathologie.

Casiday, Augustine. “On Heresy in Modern Patristic Scholarship: The Case of Evagrius Ponticus.” “” (2008): 241–252.
Patristics is a lively scholarly domain in which theologians and historians contribute to the study of Christian antiquity. But modern trends in patristic study (especially the application of contemporary critical theory to ancient sources) are not always conducive to theological research. This paper identifies the preoccupation in modern patristic study with heresy as a major source of problems. The modern study of Evagrius Ponticus (c. 345–99) provides an exemplary case in which some of these problems can be identified and explored. The initial presentation of modern scholarship will bring into focus the way that Evagrius' relationship to the sixth-century condemnations of Origenism is interpreted by most scholars. Next, the paper identifies and evaluates recent indications that Evagrius is prized precisely because he is considered a heretic. In the final section of the paper, attention is paid to the problem of presuming that subsequent events disclose the theological meaning of earlier writings and to the problem of foreclosing independent theological assessment in order to preserve ancient condemnations. The conclusions suggest that preoccupations with alleged heresy can be every bit as detrimental to understanding of theological writings as preoccupations with orthodoxy.

The origins of the Enneagram are a constant point of fascination and discussion. Uncovering the source of this remarkable oracle provides for both a deeper personal understanding and the means by which to interpret the enneagram system with legitimate authority. In the last few decades, Evagrius of Pontus has emerged as a seminal figure within mystical Christianity and mystical Islam. His influence upon the psychology and mysticism of Eastern and Oriental Christianity is immense. Much of his writing had been considered lost in antiquity, but in some remarkable recent discoveries in the libraries of Mt. Athos new light has been shone upon the Evagrian Corpus. Among the recovered writings is a letter to the monk Eulogios that describes a psychological system of nine passions and their corresponding virtues dating back to the fourth century CE. Their arrangement and description provide remarkable and groundbreaking new insights into the Enneagram. This article explores the new discoveries from Mt. Athos, and for the first time it reveals the nine passions of Evagrius of Pontus. The article then compares the Evagrian system with the modern Enneagram with a view to interpreting the Enneagram in a new and contemporary way. -pub

. Edited by Virginia Burrus and Catherine Keller, pp. 194–204. New York: Fordham University Press, 2007.
Especially in the painful disciplines of asceticism and the prayerful fantasies of mysticism, there emerges a sublimely sadomasochistic eroticism played out on a charged field of divine-human seduction that promises to take subjects to their limits and beyond, opening them in and to the cut of love. In his Chapters on Prayer, Evagrius of Pontus exults: “Happy the spirit [nous] which attains to total insensibility at prayer”. This chapter places Evagrius in dialogue with philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy in such a way as to uncover prayer as the site of the advent of a love that cuts across, breaks, or shatters the subject. In the masochistic erotics of ancient asceticism, there is disclosed the collapsing of the binary of activity and passivity that anchors Anders Nygren's dualism of agape and eros. Evagrius assumes a distinction between “impure passions” and the state of spiritual love that is both the precondition and the goal of prayer. For Evagrius, passion is that which produces psychic disturbance and distraction, scattering creative energies and dissipating joy. -pub

Terms for Eternity: Aiônios and Aïdios in Classical and Christian Texts
. [n.p.]: Gorgias Press, 2007.

What is truly timeless? This book explores the language of eternity, and in particular two ancient Greek terms that may bear the sense of "eternal": aiônios and aïdios. This fascinating linguistic chronicle is marked by several milestones that correspond to the emergence of new perspectives on the nature of eternity. These milestones include the advent of Pre-Socratic physical speculation and the notion of limitless time in ancient philosophy, the major shift in orientation marked by Plato's idea of a timeless eternity, and the further development of Pre-Socratic insights by Epicurean and Stoic thinkers. From the biblical perspective, the intersection of Greek and Hebrew conceptions is reflected in Septuagint, as well as new inflections in popular terminology in the Hellenistic and Roman periods, and in the role of eternity in the theology of the New Testament. The profound cross-fertilization of Christian and classical philosophical conceptions in the works of the Church fathers and their contemporaries is explored, bringing the topic into the Patristic period. Christian theology in the first five centuries of the Common Era and its choice of vocabulary prove to be most revealing of larger doctrinal commitments. Above all debate raged on the question of eternal damnation versus the idea (deemed heretical in the Christian church after the formal condemnation of Origenism) of apocastastis or universal salvation -- that is, the belief that the wicked are not condemned to eternal punishment but will eventually be included among the saved. Terminology for "eternity" is often at the core of how these issues were debated, and helps to identify which writers inclined to one or the other view of the matter.<br /><br />There is a small section on Evagrius Ponticus. He is shown to be as careful with his terminology as previous Patristic writers and therefore quite "mainstream"<br /><br />This is quite an important book, a prologemena to Ramelli's forthcomimg work on Apokatastasis.

61, no. 3 (2007): 258–81.

The passage 25,1-3 in Athenagoras' «Legatio pro christianis», a work replete with Greek philosophical and mythological material, seems to represent a retelling of a Jewish narrative, both biblical and pseudo-epigraphic, namely the myth of the Watchers. The Athenian introduces Greek philosophical terminology and problems within his retelling of the myth. Athenagoras, employing especially Stoic psychological terms, investigates the way the fallen angels act within the human souls. In this way, one may say that he internalized the myth and conferred on it a psychological analysis. He was probably the first to undertake this kind of investigation, before Evagrius, who articulated the most elaborate analysis of the psychological effects of the demonic influences. -cat (L'AP:)

Chapitres des disciples d'Évagre
. Sources chrétiennes 514. Paris: Éditions du Cerf, 2007.

Contents: La tradition manuscrite -- La doctrine des chapitres --Composition, style et langue -- Principes de la présente édition -- Collection athénienne -- Chapitres attestés en dehors de la collection athénienne -- Annexe. Édition des chapitres des florilèges communs à la collection athénienne ou à la chaîne de Nicétas -- Appendix 1. "L'idole du péché" --Appendix 2. Sur l'utilisation du ch. 72 dans les Scholies à l'Échelle -- Tables de concordance.

From the publisher: Les Chapitres des disciples d'Évagre, découverts vers 1975 dans un manuscrit du Musée Bénaki d'Athènes et édités ici pour la première fois, sont formés d'un peu plus de 200 képhalaia rassemblés par un ou plusieurs disciples d'Evagre au début du ve siècle. On y retrouve les grandes lignes de la doctrine spirituelle du maître, concernant la vie " pratique " et la vie " gnostique " : comment se forment les pensées (logismoi), par quels moyens peut-on les repousser, dans quelles conditions parvient-on à l'impassibilité, la contemplation et l'état de prière ? Dans ces questions, marquées par la philosophie, le lecteur trouvera l'écho d'Origène et des Cappadociens. Quelques chapitres exégétiques proposent une interprétation allégorique, parfois assez originale, rappelant qu'une des fonctions du gnostique est d'interpréter spirituellement les Écritures. Cette collection, qui ne nous est pas parvenue dans son intégralité, complète notre information sur Évagre et nous livre vraisemblablement le dernier état de sa pensée, le plus mystique. Elle a été lue aussi bien par les syriaques et les arméniens que par les byzantins. Maxime le Confesseur y a largement puisé pour composer ses IV Centuries sur la charité. Paul GÉHIN, responsable de la Section grecque de l'Institut de Recherche et d'Histoire des Textes (Paris), a déjà publié dans la collection deux oeuvres exégétiques d'Evagre, les Scholies aux Proverbes (SC 340) et les Scholies à l'Ecclésiaste (SC 397), et, en collaboration avec Antoine et Claire Guillaumont, le traité Sur les pensées (SC 438). -pub

Studia Theologica
59, no. 2 (2005): 147–162.
This article is an attempt to clarify the concept of apatheia as it appears in the Praktikos of Evagrius of Pontus. The condition (katastasis) of apatheia is central to the Evagrian understanding of the goal of monastic life, and the Praktikos is the treatise in the writings of Evagrius which deals most thoroughly with apatheia. The thesis of the article is that apatheia should be understood in terms of the Platonic distinction between stability and movement, and apatheia, thus, appears to be two different kinds of conditions, namely imperfect apatheia, related to the daily ascetic struggle of the monks against the demons and the thoughts, and perfect apatheia, related to the peaceful condition of undisturbed prayer, in which the mind contemplates the holy Trinity

The Second Origenist Controversy: A New Perspective on Cyril of Scythopolis' Monastic Biographies as Historical Sources for Sixth-Century Origenism
. Studia Anselmiana 132. Rome: Centro studi S. Anselmo, 2001.

This study is noteworthy for reconstructing the events surrounding the condemnation of Origenism and the three Chapters in the mid-sixth century. The author argues that the fifth ecumenical council was a struggle, in the main, between two coalitions. The anti-Origenists managed to have Origen, Didymus, and Evagrius condemned, but only in a special preliminary session; the main sessions condemned the three Chapters, argued by the author to be a victory for those who opposed the anti-Origenists. This explains the discrepancies in reports of the 5th ecumenical council as to what really happened, with anti-Origenists such as Cyril of Scythopolis downplaying the condemnation of the three Chapters, and suggesting instead that it was a resounding defeat of Origenism. -jk

Evagrius...brought his deep knowledge of both Hellenistic philosophy and Christian thought (especially the work of Origen) to bear on his tracing of the human journey back to perfect union with God. His several writings on prayer, and particularly his teaching about "imageless prayer," must be situated within that philosophical and theological framework. The emphasis on imageless prayer creates a tension with the Christian and monastic focus on biblical texts. Examining Evagrius' theories of mental operation and biblical exegesis helps in understanding both the imperative of imageless prayer for Evagrius and its problematic aspects. -cat

L'analyse des textes dionysiens sur la révélation de Dieu dans le monde permet de conclure à la structure triadique de l'épistémologie et de la christologie dionysienne. Cette structure est très proche de la pensée d'Évagre le Pontique. En effet, on y découvre les échos de la christologie évagrienne et de la doctrine de l'apocatastase. Il s'agit cependant d'une révision de la pensée d'Évagre, révision qui en a nuancé les conclusions les plus radicales. -cat

The Apophthegmata patrum is generally considered as one of the best witnesses about early monasticism in Egypt, especially about its spirituality. But it is equally well known that manuscript traditions of this document are extremely complicated, and one still does not know its primitive form nor the extent of the apophthegmata contained in that primitive form. Then, which elements that one finds in the extant form of the Apophthegmata patrum can be considered as deriving authentically from monks of the 4th century? To answer this question, the present paper compares the Apophthegmata patrum with the writings of Evagrius, a productive monastic author in the last two decades of the 4th century, and this comparison gives following results:-The image presented in the Apophthegmata patrum about the material (or physical) aspect of monastic life is more or less the same as Evagrius wrote in his writings, and this shows that the image presented in the Apophthegmata patrum is probably authentic on this point.-On the other hand, the image drawn in the Apophthegmata patrum about the spiritual aspect of monastic life differs on certain points from that of Evagrius, and this is possibly connected with the existence of different spiritual currents in the Egyptian monastic milieu.-The comparison in the present paper reveals also some criticism directed against Evagrius by the compiler (s) of the Apophthegmata patrum, and thus confirmed is the often suggested impression of the anti-Origenist tendency of the document. -cat

"In this article the author treats the theme of religious knowledge as the experience of God in the light of the Oriental Christian tradition. After an introduction that pinpoints what is meant by religious experience, there follows an examination of the meaning of apophatism. God by His very nature is unknowable, that is, He trascends absolutely every concept and idea. God remains a mystery for us. The Orient overcomes agnosticism affirming that one knows God only in the mesure in which one communicates with Him. One may affirm that in Oriental Christian tradition the experience and the knowledge of God both coincide. To know God means to communicate with Him. This generic discourse is applied in a particular way to theology. 'Theology' is more an experience of the living God than a discourse about God, it represents the ultimate degree of the believer's coming near to God. Only one who has had an experience of God is able to say something about Him. Among ancient authors, this is the thinking of Origen, Evagrios Pontikos, Pseudo-Macarios or Macarios/Symeon, Diadochos of Photike, Gregory of Nyssa and of the Byzantine authors: Nicholas Kabasilas, Gregory Palamas...."

Abstract: "The issue debated by Origen, whether the devil might be saved, must be considered within the broader context of the origin, the nature and the destiny of evil. If evil is neither original nor eternal (Sap. 14, 13), what about those affected by it, devil, devils, sinners, at the moment of its eschatological annihilation? Since Sap. 1, 14, the pivot of the debate in Arch III, 6, 5 seemed to exclude the ontological annihilation of the evil one, nothing was left but the possibility of his 'conversion.'" (p. 29)

AU offers five conclusions:

  1. There is no critical edition of the Arabic translations;
  2. Each treatise should be studied independently, to determine whether a translation of the Greek or the Syriac;
  3. The vocabulary needs to be studied, to identify common translators;
  4. It is acutely important to determine the authenticity of Arabic fragments that correspond to neither Greek nor Syriac;
  5. Research in Arabic Evagrius needs to be enlarged.

The Origenist Controversy: The Cultural Construction of an Early Christian Debate
. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1992.

This book is a thorough, highly nuanced, treatment of the Origenist controversy of the 390s. Clark explores the interrelationships between Jerome, Rufinus, Theophilus, and Evagrius, and finds that Evagrius had a far more prominent role than betrayed by a prima facie reading of the primary sources.

"Yet the richness of each individual proverb is greatly increased by uncovering the pattern of its placement in the text, which is never without particular purpose. It is this latter dimension on which the present study wishes to focus. I wish to suggest here at least some of the major structural features of the text's arrangement of proverbs and indicate how discerning these features provides a key to a proper interpretation both of individual proverbs and of the whole text." "Key themes of his teaching provide the structure and order of the text. Thus, the various proverbs are exercises on the following themes: (1) the relation between mind, soul, and body; (2) the three parts of the soul; (3) the eight principal evil thoughts and their order; (4) the division of the spiritual life between "praktiké" and knowledge; (5) various levels of knowledge distinguished. I would like to indicate here some of the major structural elements of the text which these themes help the reader to recognize." (pp. 362-63) -cat

The "Ad uirginem" is "usually explicitly excluded from the corpus of earliest monastic rules.... Since SV's ["Ad uirginem"] literary genre seems to be clearly defined as a letter addressed to one virgin containing parainesis, which a priori makes them into something other than a rule.... Following three non-literary criteria, which seem commonly accepted in defining whether or not a writing qualifies as a rule, SV seem to be fulfilling at least two of these criteria: First, it has a certain legislative character in line with the prescriptive literature of the time, now considered to be rules, whereby the criterion in itself is rather vague,...secondly, its content can be used to regulate life within an ascetic community with sufficient precision to grant continuity of its practice. SV do fail to fulfill the third criterion, namely that of wide distribution and acceptance by more than one generation." (pp. 403-4) -cat

"Concern about the body developed in the Origenist controversy at several decisive points. For one, theologies of the body based on Origenist and anti-Origenist views underlay the dispute over anthropomorphism that disturbed the inhabitants of the Egyptian desert in the closing years of the fourth century. For another, the anti-Origenist charges relating to marriage and reproduction that were levelled by Epiphanius of Salamis, Theophilus of Alexandria, and Jerome resonate with the arguments waged over ascetism a few years earlier. The issue feuling debate in Egypt...concerned interpretations of the 'image of God.'" "The ascetic debate, I propose, was not displaced by the Origenist controversy: it was subsumed within it."

"Der folgende Beitrag versucht nicht, die ganze Fülle der evagrianischen Einheitsmystik auszuschöpfen, sondern beschränkt sich bewußt darauf, deren 'biblische Grundintuition' herauszuarbeiten, von der her allein auch jene Texte zu deuten sind, die wir hier nicht vorgestellt haben. Evagrios ist ohne Zweifel ein echter und tiefer 'Mystiker'. Für die 'christliche' Mystik (oder besser Spiritualität) ist diese stets 'verinnerlichte Theologie'. Fassen wir letztere in jenem engeren Sinn, wie ihn Evagrios mit der Patristik voraussetzt, als Trinitätstheologie, dann ist Mystik also verinnerlichte Trinitätstheologie. Dies bedeutet, daß Evagrios, falls er ein christlicher Mystiker ist - was bisweilen bezweifelt worden ist - von jener 'Selbstoffenbarung' Gottes her denken muß, die uns im 'Mysterium Trinitatis' gegeben ist."

Grossi, Vittorino. “A proposito della presenza di Origene in 'praedestinatus': Il Cristianesimo Latino del sec. V tra Origene e Agostino.”

26 (1986): 229–40.

"La presenza di Origene [nel 'Praedestinatus'] viene registrata cinque volte." Vi "viene invece proposto e difeso l'origenismo dei monaci egiziani e palestinesi del sec. IV che, veicolato dai 'Kephalaia' di Evagrio, assurge nel monachesimo gallo del sec. V a nuova sintesi ascetico-antropologica...dopo l'anno 425, e più precisamente dopo la morte di Agostino Ý430." l'autore del "Praedestinatus" "ricalcava in sostanza la tesi di Rufino 'De adulteratione librorum Origenis' [e] distingue definitivamente tre Origene: uno di origine sira, corruttore di costumi; uno eretico, adulterato da 'perversi dottori' (Marcione-Apelle-Ampolliano) e mai esistito; uno cattolico." "Se in 'Paedestinatus' (!) Agostino è il principale autore incriminato...appare evidente che qualcuno sta tirando in ballo Origene per gli stessi motivi predestinazionisti." "Benché [l'autore del 'Praedestinatus'] giudichi la predestinazione-eresia (la predeterminazione degli uomini da parte di Dio al male e al bene) non di Agostino bensí di altri, è tuttavia come simpatia più vicino ad Origene che al vescovo d'Ippona...la sua apologia di Origene tende, da una parte, a liberare il maestro alessandrino da una possibile accusa predestinazionista; dall'altra, riproponendo vecchi argomenti di contraffazioni indotte nei suoi scritti (l'Origene da non seguire perché falso e mai esistito), tenta di dargli uno spazio ufficialmente riconosciuto presso quanti lo seguivano come loro maestro spirituale."

"In the present article I propose to re-examine the phenomenon of christian asceticism, particularly the underlying motives of the bedrock tradition of christian ascetical spirituality. Asceticism flourished in its greatest intensity (and indeed, in its most extravagant forms) in the early christian centuries. A better appreciation of these original forms will enable us to understand the past in its proper perspective, but also to appreciate the necessity for a continually developing asceticism in genuine christian spirituality." "Having thus outlined the theory and practice of early Christian asceticism, we are now in a position to explore what we have thus far called 'the underlying myths,' i. e., the thought patterns and determinants which gave these practices such depth of meaning for the Church and world of that time." "Our task, therefore, in the final part of this essay is to review the traditional forms of asceticism in the context of the needs and aspirations of modern man. Transcending the ascetical language and ideas are a set of permanent truths, touching the deepest layers of human nature. How do we formulate and express these truths in an asceticism for our time?"

From pp. 226, 360: "Evagrius himself testifies to his contacts with the two Macarius - Macarius of Alexandria and Macarius of Egypt. This article shows what he owes to both of them.... One can conclude that Macarius of Egypt played a rôle in his life comparable to that played by saint Gregory of Nazianzus. However in many respects he is indebted to Macarius of Alexandria: asceticism, antirrhesis, doctrine of thoughts, influence of the "Vita Antonii". But the rôle played by Macarius the Great is emphasized by Evagrius himself. His doctrine of discernment, of grudge, of anger and the memory of God, of the original goodness of nature, of apatheia, of prayer 'monologistos' and other points link him to Macarius the Great...." -pub

"An apophthegm preserved in the Syriac tradition speaks of a "limpid place"; the meaning of this expression poses certain problems. However it leads us to the Nestorian mystics for whom the "limpid place" is the opposite of the place of passions. Isaac of Nineveh explains its meaning: limpidity is the starting point of the way of life of the new man. Joseph Hazzaya has systematized this teaching - for him the spiritual life contains three degrees: "corporal", followed by "psychical" which leads to limpidity which in turn leads to the "spiritual" degree which is the summit of the ascent of Zion. When the monk is favoured by a visitation of Divine Grace he is in the place of limpidity and he is not obliged to attend divine service; this idea goes back to Evagrius but the apophthegm is of a Syriac monastic provenance."

Oriens Christianus

"The first Syriac writer known to us to have been influenced by Evagrius was Philoxenus of Mabbug, who died in 523. In a letter attributed to Philoxenus, the authenticity of which, however, is open to question, the writer revealed that he had made a "pussaqa" (i.e., a translation or commentary) of the "Centuries." Guillaumont therefore put forward the hypothesis that Philoxenus was the author of S1. A question thus presents itself: Did Philoxenus know the "Centuries," and if so in which edition, the authentic or the expurgated?" (pp. 65-66) -cat

Vadakkekara, C. M. “Evagrius on Prayer.” In
Prayer and Contemplation
, pp. 27–55. Studies in Christian and Hindu Spirituality 1. Bangalore: Asirvanam Benedictine Monastery, 1980.

The author points out similarities between Evagrius and Indian Sutras, noting, for instance, the similarity between his sentences and the "Sataka way of arranging verses." After summarizing the basics of Evagrius's theology, the author declines any attempt to compare the worldview of Evagrius and that of Indian spirituality. He suggests rather that there are comparisons to be made in other areas, such as prayer and contemplation: a common insistence on perseverence, discrimination, and detachment. Instead of pressing the analogy further, the author argues that Indian Christians should simply develop their own way of prayer. -jk

Ruppert sur l'obéissance dans le monachisme pachômien, notre attention a été attirée par une belle anecdote, que l'auteur cite pour preuve et pour explication d'un principe de Pachôme: ne pas expulser les frères coupables. Il s'agit d'un morceau conservé dans le manuscrit [Vaticano (Città del), Biblio. apost. Vaticana, grec 2091, f. 9-10], où il s'insère à la fin du chapitre 7 de [l'"Historia Lausiaca" (BHG 1435-38v) de Pallade d'Hélénopolis]. Édité pour la premièrefois par R.

"Évagre, originaire du Pont, a composé au désert des Kellia, en Egypte, où il a vécu à la fin du quatrième siècle, une oeuvre qui a exercé une influence profonde sur le développement de l'ascèse chrétienne, en Orient plus encore qu'en Occident. Cette oeuvre, conservée en partie seulement en grec, la langue originale, et surtout par des versions orientales, reste d'un accès difficile. Une synthèse est ici présentée qui s'en tient aux grandes lignes de la doctrine et qui cherche surtout à dégager les articulations existant entre les principaux éléments doctrinaux: la "practikè", qui comprend l'ensemble des exercices ascétiques auxquels le moine se livre dans la solitude. la "gnostikè" dont le point culminant est la "théologikè". Cette doctrine spirituelle se situe dans un système plus vaste qui comprend une cosmologie et une eschatologie, et l'on envisage, à la fin, comment se pose le problème d'une mystique évagrienne."

La thèse magistrale du professeur Guillaumont établit de façon péremptoire cette double affirmation. Nous-même, tout à fait indépendamment, sommes parvenu exactement aux mêmes conclusions."

Trop de textes ont péri, trop de fragments restent encore enfouis dans les manuscrits des chaînes pour qu'on ose proposer autre chose qu'un essai; il reste pourtant assez de jalons pour qu'on tente de retracer, sans trop de conjectures, l'itinéraire suivi dans l'exégèse de cette péricope.

"Unserer Untersuchung legen wir zugrunde den 'Liber de unione,' den 'Zenturienkommentar' und den 'Markuskommentar.' Der Pelagianismus stellte folgende Hauptgrundsätze auf: 1. Die ersten Menschen befanden sich bei ihrer Erschaffung nicht in einem übernatürlichen Urzustande. 2. Die Sünde im Paradiese hat nur Adam geschadet; sie hatte keine Auswirkung auf das Menschengeschlecht. 3. Die Kindertaufe sei nicht notwendig, da es keine Ersünde gibt. 4. Der Mensch bedarf der Gnade nicht; er kann das Gute vollbringen kraft seiner eigenen Natur ohne die Gnade. Welche Stellung hat nun Babai im einzelnen eingenommen gegenüber diesen dogmatischen Grundsätzen? Das Schrifttum Babais bietet uns hier einen vierfachen Themenkreis zu näheren Erörterungen: 1. Die Taufe; 2. Kindertaufe und Erbsünde; 3. Die Folgen des Sündenfalles im Paradiese für die Menschheit; 4. Notwendigkeit und Wirksamkeit der Gnade. Dazu gesellt sich noch eine direkte und formelle Zurückweisung des Pelagianismus." (p. 78) -cat

. Publications de la Sorbonne série patristica Sorbonensia 5. Paris: Éditions du Seuil, 1962.

Landmark study of Evagrius and Origenism, and the fate of both in Greek and Syriac cultures. Written after the author's edition and translation of the two recensions of the &lt;i&gt;Kephalaia Gnostika&lt;/i&gt;, this monograph argues that KG was at the heart of the Origenism condemned in the 6th century (and was not central to the Origenism debated in the 4th century). He argues that the first translation of the KG into Syriac was the de-Origenized version, which won for Evagrius enduring influence as the master of ascetical theology, among both Monophysites and Nestorians. In fact, Evagrius was used to argue against more speculative forms of Origenism. The second, unexpurgated Syriac version was translated afterward, to correct the first. Guillaumont's monograph has been highly influential and admired. In the later 20th century some scholars have resisted Guillaumont's portrait, and tried to absolve or at least distance Evagrius from the charge of having been a heretic. Nevertheless, this study remains the starting point for the topic. -jk

Refoulé, François. “Rêves et vie spirituelle d'après Évagre le Pontique.”
Supplément de la Vie Spirituelle

Abstract: "Selon la tradition monastique - spécialement développée par Évagre - les rêves sont révélateurs des passions de l'âme. Ils peuvent influencer l'esprit, même à l'état de veille. Les moines doivent donc chercher à modérer leur activité onirique, voire à l'éteindre, en extirpant les passions de l'âme. C'est pour cette raison, pense Évagre, que le directeur spirituel doit se soucier des rêves de son dirigé. N'est-il pas en cela le lointain précurseur de la psychanalyse?" (p. 441)

"Das letztgenannte Werk, der Markuskommentar, soll im folgenden dem Inhalte nach der Forschung bekanntgemacht werden. Der Inhalt dieses Kommentar ist im wesentlichen anthropologisch ausgerichtet. Deshalb stellen wir seine Wiedergabe unter diesen Gesichtspunkt. Wir bedienen uns dabei der rein descriptiven Methode, wobei wir zur Ergänzung, zur Vertiefung und zum besseren Verständnis die beiden bereits edierten Werke Babais, den Kommentar zu Evagrius Ponticus mit dem Zusatzkommentar der 60 Kapitel und den Liber de unione, herangezogen haben. Bei der hier durchgeführten theologischen Sachvergleichung hat sich herausgestellt, daß die beiden genannten Werke und der Markuskommentar nur einem Verfasser, eben Babai, zugeschrieben werden können. Zuvor noch einiges über die handschriftliche Überlieferung des Markuskommentars, den Verfasser der Grundschrift, d. h. der beiden Sermones, über Zeit, Zweck und Veranlassung des Kommentars. Leider ist die handschriftliche Überlieferung in einem sehr schlechten Zustande. Der Markuskommentar ist uns erhalten in einer einzigen Handschrift in London, und zwar in Br M add 17 270 (wohl 9. Jh.), die ausschließlich den Kommentar enthält. Von den 42 Blättern ist kaum eines leserlich, eine ganze Reihe bieten nur verstümmelte Sätze. Bei einer Ausgabe des syrischen Textes müßte man sich schon auf einige Textstücke beschränken. Die Verfasserschaft Babais steht außer Diskussion. Wir sind nun in der Lage, in unserem Zusammenhang einiges Neue beizutragen zum literarischen Schaffen und zum Lebensbild des Mönches Markus, des Verfassers der beiden Sermones." (pp. 46-47) -cat

At pp. 26–29 the author argues for three versions of the Syriac translation of the Praktikos:

  • S1 (early 6th c.; merges the Praktikos and the Gnostikos as if one treatise, with no preface or conclusion; represented by the greatest number of MSS);
  • S2 (executed after S1; inferior translation; distinguishes the P from the G and retains the letter to Anatolios)
  • S3 (late 6th c.; depends upon S1 and S2, but makes adjustment to the Greek; found in MSS only as extracts, not the complete text)

Article spans two volumes. Abstract: "Évagre le Pontique (346-99) occupe une place de choix dans la galerie d'ascètes qu'est l''Histoire lausiaque' (- HL).... C'est que Pallade, qui confessait à l'occasion appartenir au groupe d'Évagre, reconnaissait que celui-ci était, pour lui, un maître.... dans ces conditions, il est normal d'attendre que la spiritualité d'Évagre ait marqué l'oeuvre de Pallade. Mais sur quels points précis? et en quelle mesure?...la question a retenu notre attention à nous-même, en vue d'une traduction de HL....Nous avons donc lu Évagre en ayant présents à l'esprit les thèmes doctrinaux et le vocabulaire de HL. Il nous apparut bientôt que l'intérêt de la confrontation à laquelle nous procédions dépassait largement celui d'une aide apportée au traducteur et à l'interprète de Pallade; elle engageait le sens doctrinal même de l''Histoire lausiaque.' Nous nous en expliquerons dans la conclusion. Mais voici d'abord, notées au fil des histoires de Pallade, les rencontres successives du disciple avec le Maître." (pp. 321-25). A l'aide de 154 extraits de l''Historia Lausiaca' mis en parallèle avec l'oeuvre d'Évagre, l'A. montre la profonde influence de ce dernier sur Pallade. -cat

"Les deux pièces 'Sur les Séraphins' et 'Sur les Chérubins' renferment un bref commentaire sur la vision des Séraphins, 'Isaïe' 6,2-3 et sur la vison non moins célèbre des Chérubins, 'Ezéchiel 1, 18 et 10,12.... Le texte original de ces pièces est perdu. On en possède une version syriaque contenue dans quatre manuscrits du British Museum.... Malgré sa date tardive, (9e s.), nous avons reproduit le texte du codex D. C'est l'état du texte manuscrit...qui a déterminé le choix.... édition du texte syriaque, traduction française. Il existe également une version arménienne de la pièce 'Sur les Séraphins'.... Elle est substantiellement la même que la version syriaque et il n'y a pas de doute que nous ayons devant nous un texte traduit du syriaque. Toutefois, dans les détails, le texte arménien s'en éloigne sur plusieurs points.... Nous sommes ainsi induits à penser que le modèle syriaque de l'arménien serait une rédaction différente de celle que nous fournissent les témoins connus. On trouvera ci-dessous le texre de l'édition de B. Sarghissian, qui est basée sur le manuscrit d' Etchmiadzin numéro 1500 ("ol." no 944)." (pp. 367-68; 375-76) -cat

From pp. 253-54: "Ce que les Pères postnicéens appellent 'unité de nature' dans la Trinité est donc l'absolue simplicité de l'essence divine. [...] Une telle simplicité entraine l'impossibilité d'être multipliée comme celle d'être divisée ou composée. l'unité de nature contient donc l'unité dite numérique et la dépasse. [...] dans les doctrines trinitaires, on oppose volontiers les Latins aux Grecs (et S. Hillaire fait alors partie du groupe des Grecs), les seconds s'attachant, dit-on, au problème de l'origine, aux personnes et aux processions et s'efforçant ensuite de rejoindre l'unité de nature; les premiers par une voie contraire partant de la nature divine et cherchant à distinguer les Personnes. [...] On comprend mieux dès lors pourquoi, dans leurs luttes contre les hérésies du IVe siècle, ils n'envisageaient que deux écueils; ou la confusion des Personnes telle que la soutenait le sabellianisme, ou la diversité des essences 'séparées, dissemblables, étrangères', ce qui était la folie d'Arius." -pub

See 3:68-120 for Evagriana. Pp. 117-20 has a Greek fragment of the Life of Evagrius, important for recounting Evagrius's theological dispute with three demons disguised as clergymen. This story is also found in the Coptic Life of Evagrius, an important witness to the longer version of Palladius's Lausiac History, which no longer survives in Greek. -jk

Egyptian monks were known for the commitment to unceasing prayer, but what did this really mean? This paper will explore forms of monastic prayer from historical, theological, and ascetic perspectives, challenging our assumptions about how early monastic men and women actually prayed and what their own experience of prayer may have been. Both textual and archeological evidence will be considered. Major issues will include the role of biblical texts in monastic prayer, tracing fault lines between different theological understandings of prayer, and establishing foundations for later development of prayer practice. -pub
