Sabas, Leader of Palestinian Monasticism
A Comparative Study in Eastern Monasticism, Fourth to Seventh Centuries
Joseph Patrich

The impact of the life of Sabas and his exceptional system of monastic life has endured from the fifth century to the present. In this study, which originated from an archeological survey, Joseph Patrich examines the Sabaitic contributions to Palestinian monasticism, from Sabas’s role as founder and abbot to the theological struggles after his death.
