The Life of a celebrated Fool for Christ's sake in sixth-century Syria, written by Leontius, Bishop of Neapolis in Cyprus, who also wrote the life of Saint John the Almsgiver. A very edifying life, filled with the colorful exploits of a Fool for Christ's sake, a form of asceticism – in fact one of the highest forms of asceticism – that the Introduction to the book explains.
