Abstract

This paper investigates the 7th century description of Egypt drawn from Il Prato Spirituale by Giovanni Mosco. Every element of the text asserts the triumph of the only true practicable road, i.e. Chalcedon orthodoxy. The 451 Council had led to a schism of the Christian church between those who accepted and those who repudiated it and were from then on called «monophysites». The reasons behind the adjustments of the objective datum are the defence of Chalcedon and the attacks on monachism considered heterodox. The retrieval is attempted by way of a critical reading of the text and a confrontation with the available documentary source material, which is less mediated and closer to reality.
