The winner of this year’s Kayden Book Award is Andy Cain, for his book, The Greek Historia Monachorum in Aegypto: Monastic Hagiography in the Late Fourth Century (Oxford UP, 2016). The book revisits one of the foundational texts on fourth-century monasticism in Egypt. The committee cited the clarity of the work’s presentation and the depth of the analysis it offered, along with the manner in which it allows the reader to move from close readings of the text to a ’stroll’ through the events that accompanied the seven monks from Jerusalem to Egypt, as grounds for its selection.
Many congratulations to Andy Cain!
