This concluding chapter begins with a discussion of John Cassian's writings. It is argued that Cassian's works are relevant to the study of monasticism, in both the East and West, and to the host of topics that nestle under that heading. Cassian's works are also relevant to historical theology, itself a field that is marked by a real tension between the polarities of historical enquiry and theological enquiry.
