Description: In 587 AD, Two Monks Set Off on an extraordinary journey that would take them in an arc across the entire Byzantine world, from the shores of the Bosphorus to the sand dunes of Egypt. On the way, John Moschos and his pupil Sophronius the Sophist stayed in caves, monasteries, and remote hermitages, collecting the wisdom of the stylites and the desert fathers before their fragile world finally shattered under the great eruption of Islam. More than a thousand years later, using Moschos's writings as his guide, William Dalrymple sets off to retrace their footsteps.

Dalrymple's pilgrimage takes him through a bloody civil war in eastern Turkey, the ruins of Beirut, the vicious tensions of the West Bank, and a fundamentalist uprising in southern Egypt, and becomes an elegy to the slowly dying civilization of Eastern Christianity and the peoples that have kept its flame alive. "From the Holy Mountain" is a rich and gripping blend of history and spirituality, adventure and politics, threaded through with Dalrymple's unique sense of black comedy.
