Although not known by name for generations, Evagrius crafted the ideals of western asceticism through his widely-disseminated works. The living link through whom the ascetic principles of hellenistic philosophers passed into monasticism, Evagrius also molded Christian asceticism through his influcence on John Cassian, Climacus, Pseudo–Denis, and Saint Benedict. Born in 345 in Ibora in Pontus, Evagrius united the mystical theology of Origen and the rigorous asceticism of the desert monks in a tradition which still lives today.

The Celtic Monk

Rules and Writings of Early Irish Monks
ISBN: 978-1-60724-213-0
In the Early Middle Ages, the irish temperament—individualistic, poetic, and deeply loyal to family—produced great and learned saints and a unique monastic literature. Before the Norman Invasion, the isolation of the island allowed the development of traditions quite different from those of the continent or Britain. The rules, maxims, litanies, and poems of early irish monks convey the spirituality of the Isle of Saints in the sixth to eighth centuries.
