// December 1st, 2011 // Meet the Author
Ken talks with Anthony Ryan, Marketing Director for Ignatius Press about their recently published book The Desert Fathers – Saint Anthony and the Beginnings of Monasticism by German author and professor of theology Peter H. Gorg. In the late 3rd century, more and more people withdrew to the radical seclusion of the desert so as to live entirely for God. Among these “Desert Fathers” St Anthony the Hermit is the best know. You will also learn about Paul of Thebes, Pachomius, and Simeon Stylites among others.
