A comrade has asked for recommendations for modern authors on ascetical theology. Unfortunately, I couldn’t point him to much…
I’m woefully lacking in modern bibliography in this area. The best I could do was to suggest modern translations of Evagrius and John Cassian and suggest that those who study these authors might cite some useful material.
Because of the place of virtue in ascetical theology, though, I was thinking some of the recent works on virtue ethics (perhaps along the line of Alasdair MacIntyre’s After Virtue) might be helpful.
Does anybody have some other suggestions?
