Abstract:The Lausiac History is an edifying book, a profession of our faith in the Living God, of a spirituality that is defining for Orthodoxy.Palladius knew the community of the Desert Fathers first-hand, as he was a man of God during his entire stay in Egypt. „I have a secret purpose and God knows my heart,” Abba Natanael would say. It was the purpose of all those who left the world in order to lead in the desert a life full of deprivation and temptation: to achieve inner peace, and perfection.The desert is a space that does not belong to the monk: it is a reality different from lay experience, it means overcoming a barrier, crossing a border, it is a painstaking search, full of courage and boldness.The encounter with these venerable men and women occasions an opening towards one's own soul. By means of prayer, humility, delicacy, simplicity, lovingkindness, the Desert Fathers climbed the steps towards their salvation.In a hecic world that apreciates material wealth and transient pleasures, the voice of the Desert Fathers calls us to spirituality and inner life.
