Apophthegmata Patrum apo, from; phtheggomai , to cry out; pater, father , sayings of the Fathers of the Desert. Various collections exist of aphorisms and anecdotes illustrative of the spiritual life, of ascetic and monastic principle, and of Christian ethics, attributed to the more prominent hermits and monks who peopled the Egyptian deserts in the fourth century. In all these collections the great mass of material is the same, although differently disposed, and it is now agreed that our actual apophthegma literature is Greek, though no doubt much of it is ultimately of Coptic origin. In the course of the fourth century this or that saying of the more famous ascetics was repeated by their disciples, and thus circulated.
