Saint Paisios the Great

The life of one of the greatest saints who lived in the Egyptian Desert. St. Paisios lived during the fourth century and the later Egyptian father, St. John the Dwarf, composed this life. In addition to the life of St. Paisios and the main liturgical hymns in his honor, this volume offers a part of the life of St. John the Dwarf from the Synaxarion for November 9.

The stories and sayings found in these lives should act as an encouragement for all who seek to live a Christian life today, whether as a monastic or in the world. They communicate a vision of a world where the earthly and heavenly realms are intertwined.
