Abstract :
Violence and killing occupy an important place in the Liber Graduum, and appears to be a real threat to the main pillars of the Liber Graduum's ascetic spirituality which is based on peace and love in Christ. This theme of violence and killing should be divided into two major sections – the persecuted ascetics and the violent ones – in order to understand the phenomenon of violence within the Liber Graduum's community.
