9780913836446: Three Byzantine Saints: Contemporary Biographies of St. Daniel the Stylite, St. Theodore of Sykeon, and St. John the Almsgiver

These Byzantine biographies of St Daniel the Stylite, of St Theodore of Sykeon, and of St John the Almsgiver help us to enter into the Byzantine ascetic thought world, with its miracles, its feeling of the nearness of saints and demons, its contempt for the body, its longing for the peace of the soul. They also give us a vivid picture of life in Asia Minor before the Arab invasions, and are in many ways documents concerning the social history of Byzantium. The introduction and bibliographical notes of Dr Norman Baynes are a mine of information and are matched by the excellence of the translations of the lives by Dr Elizabeth Dawes, who captures the widely divergent aspects of Byzantine piety. John the Almsgiver was Patriarch of Alexandria in a time of crisis during the early years of the seventh century; Theodore the Sykeote represents life among the peasantry of Anatolia at the end of the sixth century; while Daniel the pillar saint, who died in 493AD through his strange form of asceticism, challenged many to seek a more disciplined theological and spiritual life.

Book Description St. Vladimirs Seminary Press July 1997, 1997. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. We often form a perception of Eastern Christianity in the patristic period through the lenses of the writings of the great Fathers, or the pronouncements of ecumenical councils. Though this is legitimate, it is equally necessary to encounter the popular piety of the period through reading the lives of its saints. The sources range beyond the more familiar collections of lives of the Desert Fathers, and in this book we gain access to some of them. These accounts of a pillar-saint near the imperial capital, an Anatolian peasant, and a widower patriarch of Constantinople range from the late fifth to early seventh centuries, and convey vividly the miracles, sayings, and attitudes of their subjects, as well as the hopes and homely needs and desires of the average Christians whose veneration they attracted. These are saints who are drawn from the common people, who respond to entreaties to heal, to tame wild beasts, to cast out demons, to defend against the tyranny of the mighty.
