Evagrius was an able disciple of Alexandrine theological school, as practiced by the Desert Fathers, as Coenobitic monastic tradition. He creatively transmitted the essence of Coptic spirituality that deeply influenced Oriental and Western Christian thinkers from John Cassian to Simeon the new theologian, and his influence is still felt today.

One of most influential theologians in the late fourth-century church, he was well known as a thinker, polished speaker, and gifted writer. He left a promising ecclesiastical career in Constantinople and traveled to Jerusalem, where in he became a monk at the monastery of Rufinus and Melania the Elder.

He then went to Egypt and spent the remaining years of his life in Nitria and Kellia, marked by years of asceticism and writing. He was a disciple of several influential contemporary church leaders, including Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nazianzus, and Macarius of Egypt. He was teacher of others, including John Cassian and Palladius. Evagrius develops a sophisticated psychology which remains beneficial to us today. Indeed, this 4th-century Desert Father writes for Christians everywhere: for those in modern deserts—the city—and for those subject to silent despair.

Guide to Evagrius Ponticus

The works of Evagrius, few of which are preserved entire in Greek, survive haphazardly: in anthologies; in quotations; in ancient Syriac, Armenian, or Latin translations; or in pseudonymous collections ascribed to more acceptable authors, such as St. Basil or St. Because of the complexity of the manuscript tradition, editing Evagrius's writings is an ongoing, painstaking process. Below is the list of all known works, along with editions and translations in the bibliography. The Clavis patrum graecorum CPG , supplemented by recent scholarship, has been followed for assigning certainty of authorship.
