  • Is there monasticism in the Orthodox Church? -  J.A.

    Part 2
    This week we continue our discussion on monasticism. There are several foundations for the monastic life, which occur in the unwritten conventions of Judaism and Christianity, as well as in the holy scriptures. History shows that there were several monastic-like Jewish sects, such as the Essenes, the Nazarenes and Ebionites. In most of them, persons distanced themselves from the world, or left it for the desert, in order to contemplate and worship God without worldly distraction.
