Book: John Cassian and the Creation of Monastic Subjectivity

Chapter: Conclusion

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42864


To conclude, chapter six will sum up the case I have made. I then discuss the implications of such a conclusion. First, had separation been executed as Cassian may have intended, it may have created a very early “reformation,” with the church split between monastics and clergy. I then include possible avenues for further investigation around this topic.
