The Paradise, or Garden of the Holy Fathers (Book 2) by Palladius ( - c.457). Translated by E. A. Wallis Budge (1857 - 1934)

This project is now in our catalog at https://librivox.org/the-paradise-or-garden-of-the-holy-fathers-book-2-by-palladius/

The Desert Fathers were early Christian hermits, ascetics, and monks who mainly lived in the Scetes desert of Egypt. The most famous was St. Anthony the Great, who moved to the desert in 270 AD and became known as both the father and founder of desert monasticism. By the time Anthony died in AD 356, thousands of monks and nuns had been drawn to Anthony's example of living in the harsh conditions of the inner desert, praying the psalms, meditating on scripture, eating rarely, and working with their hands making baskets or mats. This work is a collection of stories from the lives of these early monks and nuns. (ancientchristian)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

OK the first file is up there. I skipped the footnote / endnote at the end of Chapter 2 since I felt it wasn't relavent. The text is:

"[In the text here comes the following note by some editor of Palladius:] Concerning these histories of Paule, and of the company of Mark (?), and of Macarius, there are some who say that they were compiled by Hieronymus because his name occurs at the end of them."

Not sure what you mean. What is the dashboard? Can you get into the magic window?

Here is what I call the Dashboard https://librivox.org/stats/sections
Then I go to PL view.
From there I see what I need to PL.
When I go to the project and click it just goes to the first page of that "dashboard" .
The only way I can get into the project is from the posting address.
??It seems like that happened before and eventually it started working.

Ancient - I am not doing word perfect proofing- just listening for repeats, or flubs, etc. Did you want word perfect -that is for me to follow along and make notes of any divergence from the source? Cheryl

It's up to you. Word-for-word is ideal, but it can be rather tiring. I knew I was tired when I recorded that one so i wanted to double-check myself. I don't really mind either way. I plan to be more focused for future recordings.

The first post says standard PL. With the small text I recommend you leave it that way but if you wish to change it let me know.
