Excerpt

pièges du démon. Je l'ai connu du temps qu'il vivait parmi nous; il s'égayait avec ses disciples, et jamais il ne tomba dans la mélancolie. Mais n'es-tu pas venu, mon frère, m'entretenir d'un dessein formé dans ton esprit? Tu me favoriseras en m'en faisant part, si toutefois ce dessein a pour objet la gloire de Dieu.

--Frère Palémon, je me propose en effet de glorifier le Seigneur. Fortifie-moi de ton conseil, car tu as beaucoup de lumières et le péché n'a jamais obscurci la clarté de ton intelligence.

--Frère Paphnuce, je ne suis pas digne de délier la courroie de tes sandales et mes iniquités sont innombrables comme les sables du désert. Mais je suis vieux et je ne te refuserai pas l'aide de mon expérience.

--Je te confierai donc, frère Palémon, que je suis pénétré de douleur à la pensée qu'il y a dans Alexandrie une courtisane nommée Thaïs, qui vit dans le péché et demeure pour le peuple un objet de scandale.

--Frère Paphnuce, c'est là, en effet, une abomination dont il convient de s'affliger.
