Bishop Thomas entered the monastery of Beth Abhe Church in the year of 832 and subsequently became an influential and important figure in the Early Church. This work was written at the request of a young monk, who had urged Bishop Thomas to record for posterity the lives of the most famous monks of Beth Abhe. As a result we get a threaded-together series of events, stories and personal histories, which show how monks and early monasticism existed on a day-to-day and individual-to-individual basis.
