Abstract

This paper explores the conceptualization of the body in the work of Evagrius Ponticus in terms of his anthropological, cosmological and soteriological framework and the range of ascetic practices he prescribes. Overall, Evagrius’ perspective on the body is shown to be unified and integrated with soul and mind.
