In the series Silentium Apophthegmata, the language of thought from the fathers and mothers of the desert is published.
The thematically arranged collection of thought languages is published under the name Paradiset, which is the most widespread in the West. The languages of thought, like other collections of stories about saints, were often called the garden or paradise in early Christian tradition, and in Syriac and Coptic tradition the languages of thought are still known today as the "garden of the monks".
The edition is bilingual with the original Greek text and a parallel Swedish translation. From before, there is a selection of thought languages from the Greek alphabetic collection in translation by Per Beskow, The Thought Language of the Desert Fathers . Most of the thinking languages in Paradiset have not previously been translated into Swedish.
