A study of the ascetic teaching of 7th century writer Isaac of Nineveh (Isaac the Syrian), a popular figure in Eastern Christain tradition. Hagman uses Isaac's writings to argue that asceticism is not about punishing the body, but is a way to use the body to communicate the Christian message to society.
