Hankering After Something New

Disputations discusses the fascination with the new here and here.

I think this relates to many admonitions in the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, primarily the ones along the lines of "whatever you do, stay in your cell." It seems like neophilia in the days of Scetis would typically manifest itself with monks wanting to get up and move to different sketes.

I remember one vignette off-hand. The Abba says "water the palm trees." The disciple says "but we are not at our skete. We are in [X], Abba." The Abba says "What am I doing in [X]? Let us return to our skete at once."
