Review quote

The book everywhere bears the mark of a specialist intimately acquainted with an enormous range of source material: Wipszycka skilfully combines the skills of historian, papyrologist and archaeologist, a rare feat. [...] This is a volume that will prove indispensable to the studies of apprentice and expert alike, and will no doubt serve as the standard point of departure for subsequent research into the social history of late antique Egyptian monasticism. ...warmly recommended to all with an interest in the subject as required and indispensable reading.' -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review Bryn Mawr Classical Review
