Sr. Benedicta Ward

Yet another collection of the words of wisdom from the desert... there really can't be too many! This, known as the "Alphabetical Collection", is a particular body of aphorisms and apothegmata. Consistuted initially from numerous local oral traditions, the collection has existed in its present form at least from the twelfth century, but probably much earlier. Paperbound
