Saint Mary of Egypt

A Modern Verse Life and Interpretation (Volume 65) (Monastic Wisdom Series)
  • Foreword by Benedicta Ward
  • By Bonnie B. Thurston

Product Description
From its origins in the fourth and fifth centuries, first in monastic circles and then in wider Christian communities, the story of Mary of Egypt was wildly popular. From early Christianity through the medieval periods, from Egypt to Scandinavia, verse lives in Greek, Latin, and vernacular languages portray her as the model of repentance.

This modern verse life and the accompanying essay reintroduces St. Mary's extraordinary life, its theological and spiritual implications, and its remarkable depiction of gender complementarity.
