Michel-Ange Marin - Les Vies des Pères des Déserts d'Orient - 1771

This book is an extremely influential religious text. It is very culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. It was written by Michel-Ange Marin (1697 – 1767) who was a monk and religious author. This book is volume one of four and takes us back to the roots of monastic life in 4th-century Egypt. The Desert Fathers possessed the true Christian spirit, the realization that we belong not to ourselves but to God. Incomparable narratives and spiritual instructions from the faith-filled lives of the first Christian monks. Follow the Desert Fathers along the pathways of holiness and discover with them the profound meaning of Jesus’ words: “The kingdom of God is within you.” The glue in the spine is slightly dried up and the first page has a small tear. Otherwise, the book is in good antiquarian condition.
