Die Erzählung des Pseudo-Neilos-ein spätantiker Märtyrerroman
The work traditionally attributed to the church father Nilus of Ancyra tells of a raid on the monastic settlement on Mount Sinai and the adventures of two monks living there, an old man and his son. The latter is abducted by Bedouins right in front of his father. They want to sacrifice the handsome youth to the morning star. After many hardships, the old father finds him alive and well, and both are ordained priests by the bishop of Eluse.
With this book, a still little-known text of some literary interest is made accessible to a wider public.
