Life of St. Athony - ST. ATHANASIUS
VITA S. ANTONI
(WRITTEN BETWEEN 356 AND 362)
THE Life of St. Antony is included in the present collection partly on account of the important influence it has exercised upon the development of the ascetic life in the Church, partly and more especially on the ground of its strong claim to rank as a work of Athanasius. If that claim were undisputed, no apology would be needed for its presence in this volume.
