Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The photographs for this book were made over a three-year period when I lived in Egypt.  Visiting more than a dozen monasteries in southern Egypt and Wadi al-Natrun, as well as the Red Sea monasteries, I made thousands of images of the monks, monasteries, and monastic life to convey a sense of the ancient desert spirituality that is still alive and thriving in Coptic Egypt. Paired with the photos are selections from the ancient Desert Fathers of Egypt of the third and fourth centuries to show the continuity of the spiritual life in the Coptic tradition. I hope you will find the images of today's Desert Fathers and the teachings of their ancient forefathers as enriching as I did in making them and learning about the firsthand from these living vessels of ancient Christian spirituality.

About the Author

Photographer Michael McClellan has been photographing monks and monasteries since the late 1970s, concentrating mostly on the monastic life of the Eastern and Occidental Orthodox Churches.  A native of Kentucky with a Master's degree in Photography from Syracuse University, he has pursued photography as an avocation while working full-time as a Foreign Service Officer.  Two other book projects about the monastic life are currently in progress.
