The author draws our attention, even from the first lines, that most unhappy things happen to us in life from the blindness of our mind of indifference and addresses us an invitation to overcome this state by researching the lives of the saints.

Saint Sinklitikia, a "pearl unknown to many", is one of the first woman monks whose life was laid down in writing. She was, for women who worshiped the life of God, what St. Anthony the Great was for the men who came to follow his life. Her life is a true ascetic treatise, meant to be a guide for the novice monk, an initiation into the mysteries of ascetic life. Saint Sinklitikia is, in the eyes of Saint Athanasius the Great, the exemplary model of the perfect mother, whose life perfectly illustrates the teaching and ideal of monastic life, so that her teachings represent a remarkable synthesis of the ascetic experience of Egyptian monastic circles.

In addition to the Life of Saint Sinclitichia, the volume includes five other ascetic writings attributed to Saint Athanasius the Great, accompanied by the brief introduction that the editor of the Greek text makes to each of them.
