Publishers Description

The saintly austerities of Mary of Egypt so impressed early monks that they recorded her life to edify their brethren. Many versions circulated and the tale traveled from Palestine to Europe, from Greek to Latin to French to Spanish, from prose to poetry, from hagiography to literature, and from the monastery into the world outside. Here we see Mary through the eyes of three medieval poets: Flodoard, a canon of Reims (+ 966), Hildebert of Lavardin, a bishop, (+ 1134), and an Anonymous Spaniard.

"Ronald E. Pepin received his Ph.D. in Classics from Fordham University. After serving as a professor of Humanities for over thirty years, Pepin retired to the small orchard in Connecticut where he now resides. He occasionally teaches Elderhostel courses at Ascension Priory in Idaho. A member of the Medieval Academy of America, Dr. Pepin is the author of numerous articles in scholarly journals, and he has published five books, among them other translations from Latin. "

Reviews - What do customers think about Saint Mary of Egypt: Three Medieval Lives in Verse (Cistercian Studies Series)?

A Solid Collection of Stories of Repentance of a Popular Eastern Saint Little Known In The West  Jan 17, 2007
This book was the first in a series of about eight books I read in a single month on religion and theology. The purpose of my reading such an extensive list in a short amount of time was for me to be drawn closer to God through inspirational reading. St. Mary of Egypt, the main character in the three long poems in the book, is a Saint popular in the East, especially in Eastern Orthodoxy but in Eastern Catholicism as well. She spent most of her life in a state of sin, but finally did great penance to become one of the greatest Saints of Christendom. The story is marvelously amazing since it taught me that no matter how sinful one may feel, God extends mercy to those who seem furthest away from him. The book gets extra props from me since it is a collection of three medieval verses from the West about a Saint little known in the West. Hopefully, one day we in the West will learn to share in the wisdom of the Christian East and the East will share in the theological nature of the West and the Church will breathe, as Pope John Paul II said, with two lungs again East (mystical and contemplative) and West (rational). The book is rather short and makes an entertaining light read. It serves as a good introduction into the Cistercian Studies series which brings the mystical and little known to a popular audience. Good work :)
