In the 3rd to 6th century desert landscape of Egypt, Syria, Palestine, and Arabia, a powerful movement was happening. The center of this movement was in Egypt; by the year 400 CE Egypt was the land of monks experimenting with a variety of forms of monasticism including the solitary life of the hermit.
The spiritual seekers came to be known as the desert fathers and mothers who had withdrawn from a society where the misuse of human relationships, power, and material possessions red counter to their sense of the sacredness of life. We will look at the sayings of these hermits.
