Driven to Move into the Wilderness to Pray: The Fourth-Century Desert Tradition

Abstract: This study examines fourth-century spiritual elders who responded to the command of Christ by migrating into the desert hills outside their home-towns in order to seek the presence of God in solitary prayer; and finds that their deep spiritual askesis, handed on from elder to disciple from generation to generation, produced a rich treasury of wisdom Sayings (Apophthegmata) treasured in the heritage of the Orthodox Church.

Keywords: migration, asceticism, Apophthegmata, early Christianity, spirituality
