The writings of Evagrius Ponticus were highly influential on ascetic practice not only in the Greek tradition, but also in the Syriac tradition through the translation of many of Evagrius' works and citations of Evagrius by various Syriac authors. Another sign of the influence of Evagrius on the Syriac tradition is the present work: a commentary on the ascetic instructions of Evagrius by 12th century Syriac author Dionysius (Jacob) bar Salibi. The work is organized according to the order of Evagrius' "100 Theses" that deal with instruction for new monks. Bar Salibi presents the text of all 100 of Evagrius' statements and then offers a brief interpretation and discussion of each one. The text of the work is presented in a vocalized Serto script and the individual theses are distinguished according to the Syriac numbering system. The volume also includes a preface by Julius Yeshu Çiçek.
