Saint Evagrios the Solitary : Biography

Evagrios Pontikos was born in 345 or 346, probably at Ibora in Pontus. A disciple of the Cappodocian Fathers, he was ordained reader by St. Basil the Great and he accompanied St Gregory the Theologian to the Council of Constantinople in 381. He draws upon the living experience of the Desert Fathers of Egypt, mainly Copts, among whom he spent the last years of his life.
