Eastern Christian Monasticism

Eastern Christian Monasticism is the life followed by monks and nuns of Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy and Eastern Catholicism. Some authors will use the term "Basilian" to describe Eastern monks; however, this is incorrect, since the Eastern Church does not have religious orders, as in the West, nor does Eastern monasticism have monastic Rules, as in the West.

Famous quotes containing the words monasticism, eastern and/or christian:

    Christianity as an organized religion has not always had a harmonious relationship with the family. Unlike Judaism, it kept almost no rituals that took place in private homes. The esteem that monasticism and priestly celibacy enjoyed implied a denigration of marriage and parenthood.
    Beatrice Gottlieb, U.S. historian. The Family in the Western World from the Black Death to the Industrial Age, ch. 12, Oxford University Press (1993)

    The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
    Checkering the eastern clouds with streaks of light.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The Christian always swears a bloody oath that he will never do it again. The civilized man simply resolves to be a bit more careful next time.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
