This study of Leontius of Neapolis fleshes out a broad picture of the religious, intellectual and social environment in which the "Life of Symeon the Fool" was created and opens a window onto the Christian religious imagination at the end of late antiquity. The book explores the concept of holy folly by relating Symeon's life to the gospels, to earlier hagiography and to anecdotes about Diogenes the Cynic.
