9789774244636: Monasticism in Egypt: Images and Words of the Desert Fathers

Christian monasticism began in Egypt over 1600 years ago, in the desert between the Nile Valley and the Red Sea, and spread through various Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant traditions. In the deserts of Egypt, sixteen centuries after the Desert Fathers, monasticism still thrives, and it is to these isolated monasteries in one of the world's most inhospitable environments that photographer Michael McClellan turns his lens.McClellan reveals the quiet, spiritual world of today's desert fathers in the Coptic monasteries of the Red Sea Mountains, Wadi al-Natrun, and Upper Egypt, and in the Greek Orthodox monastery of Saint Catherine at the foot of Mount Sinai. Illuminating the photographs are extracts from The Paradise of the Fathers, tales of the Desert Fathers collected by Saint Palladius.
