Letters from an Ancient Mind


What if…. You found a correspondence between an elderly Christian of the fifth century and a young Christian of the modern era? What would you find?

Here is such a correspondence. We have but one side of the letters, that of the elderly Christian.. As you would expect, some of the letters from this ancient mind bring out ideas which are very strange to our modern way of thinking. (I cannot imagine my children allowing me to pick a wife or husband for them). But it is just this point of view which makes them interesting to me. So I had them translated, and now present them to you.
