This work details the lives of seven Palestinian monks and abbots, written in popular Greek by Cyril of Scythopolis, a sixth-century monk. Of his subjects, Euthymius founded the monastery in which Cyril resided, on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho; Sabas founded Mar Saba, in the wilderness east of Jerusalem; John the Silent retired from a bishopric to be one of Sabas' hermits; Cyriacus polemicized against Origenism and founded a monastery; Theodosius the Coenobiarch founded a monastery which still exists, east of Bethlehem; Theognius was a bishop and monk; Abraham of Kratia was an abbot who left his monastery to be a hermit in Palestine. Included are Greek texts, with copious indices and appendices on the manuscripts, Cyril's dates, the historical context, and what little can be known about Cyril himself.
