From the Publisher
"Wortley has served up not only a translation but, as he calls it, a ‘select edition’ of the Anonymous Collection of the Apophthegmata Patrum for Cambridge University Press. It is a collection long awaited by scholars, and Wortley is certainly to be commended for, at last, making available both edition and translation of this important but heretofore understudied body of Greek monastic literature."
Reviews in Religion and Theology
"Beautifully produced with a concise introduction, select bibliography, and index, this volume inspires hope for comparable, even matching, text and translation editions of the other collections … Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above."
