Description

Excerpt from Noble Thoughts of Epictetus Aurelius, who was beyond doubt the most humane and enlightened ruler of ancient times. He says in his Meditations, From Rusticus I received the impression on my character that required improvement and discipline, and I am indebted to him for being acquainted with the Discourses of Epictetus.' That the Manual was highly esteemed by the Early Fathers of the Christian Church is evidenced by many references to it, and especially to the fact that Saint Nilus made it the rule of life of the Christian Anchorites of Mount Sinai.
