Conferences by John Cassian( Book )

98 editions published between 1472 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than sixteen centuries, John Cassian has been honored as one of the greatest early monastic writers. The breadth of his experience of eremitical life in the Egyptian desert, his distinction as a theologian and churchman, and especially his veneration for some of the great Desert Fathers are conveyed in the Institutes and Conferences, which continue to be prized as a spiritual resource by Christians in East and West. The two classsic conferences on prayer are presented here in a new translation with critical introduction
John Cassian, the institutes by John Cassian( Book )

77 editions published between 1485 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Institutes is the first written work of John Cassian, a man who had an immense influence on Western monasticism and, by extension, on Western civilization. A native of Dacia, Cassian (c. 360-430) joined a monastery in Bethlehem in his early adult years. From Palestine, Cassian and his traveling companion, Germanus, visited Egypt several times." "Although Cassian eventually settled in Marseilles, his experience of Egyptian monasticism left an indelible impression on his life. It is the wisdom he learned there that he shares in The Institutes as well as in his later "companion piece," The Conferences." "The Institutes consists of two sections. In the first, Cassian deals with the institutes and rules of Egyptian monasteries, including monastic garb and forms of prayer. The balance of the work treats the eight principal vices (gluttony, fornication, avarice, anger, sadness, acedia, vainglory, and pride) and discusses strategies for countering their effects."--Jacket

51 editions published between 1923 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composé dans les années 420-430, ce recueil se divise en deux grandes parties : les quatre premiers livres traitent de l'habit monastique, de l'ordre à suivre pour l'office divin, du comportement de "l'homme extérieur". Les livres suivants sont un exposé ascétique sur les huit vices principaux contre lesquels le moine doit lutter pour parvenir à la parfaite pureté du coeur
John Cassian, the conferences by John Cassian( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Cassian: The Conferences is the first complete English translation of the twenty-four dialogues between Cassian and the desert fathers of Egypt. A native of Dacia, Cassian (c. 360-430) joined a monastery in Bethlehem when he was in his early adult years. From Palestine, Cassian and Germanus, a companion, traveled several times to Egypt where they learned about the monastic tradition from the great desert masters or abbas. Cassian's writings here record twenty-four dialogues with fifteen abbas." "The Conferences have long been a key work in monastic circles and among scholars of spirituality. Ramsey's helpful introductions and annotations make them accessible to a new and broader readership. Careful attention to references, notes and appendices demonstrate the outstanding research and writing which helped produce this monumental volume."--Jacket
