“For when did the knowledge of God so shine forth? When did chastity and the virtue of virginity so manifest itself, or when was death so despised, as since the Cross of Christ appeared?”

We’re quickly approaching the conclusion to this great spiritual classic by St. Athanasius! In this episode, we’ll hear Athanasius recount a litany of wonders God worked through St. Anthony’s prayer: more healings, visions, and casting out of evil spirits, as well as descriptions of St. Anthony’s theological tussles with Arian heretics and Greek philosophers.

If you’ve not yet listened to our previous installments in this series, today’s episode stands on its own; but after listening, you may find you’ll want to go back and hear this extraordinary life from the beginning.
