The Desert Fathers and Mothers were pioneers of the inner life. Compelled into the silence of the desert in order to live more for God and to explore the nature of prayer and what it means to be human, they battled with their demons, nurtured inner stillness and yearned for purity of heart. Many were formidable human beings and what they became in the desert forms a deeply significant part of our Christian heritage. Following Christ’s journey into the wilderness, their spirituality has had a huge influence on Christianity.
