About the Author

Augustine Casiday is Leverhulme Fellow in the Department of Theology, Durham. His research primarily concerns Christian monasticism during the first millennium. He has published several articles on Evagrius and other early monastic authors.


'...Casiday's Evagrius remains an excellent introduction to an elusive yet important father of the desert.'- Bryn Mawr Reviews

'A worthy addition to the Early Church Fathers series, Casiday's Evagrius Ponticus constitues an eloquent attempt to enroll a much maligned figure in the gallery of fourth century theologians who had a major hand in shaping crucial dogmas.' -Bryn Mawr Reviews
