Voices from the Desert: The Lost Wisdom of the Skelligs

The legacy of Skelligs and other famous monastic settlements in Ireland is remarkably brought alive in the writings of a young monk who travelled the deserts of Egypt to discover the origins and practices of the movement which inspired them. In 384 AD, John Cassian began his 24 interviews with famous Desert Fathers and recorded them in The Conferences which had a profound effect on spiritual life in Western Europe, especially in Ireland.
