Isaac of Nineveh, also known as Isaac the Syrian, is unquestionably one of the greatest ancient Eastern Christian writers, and his teachings on the spiritual life are treasured in both the East and the West. This comprehensive study presents Isaac’s life, work, and thought and discusses his sources and his influence, attested both by his readers over the course of the centuries and by the numerous ancient editions of his works. A list of these, together with a bibliography and indexes, concludes the volume.
