Life for monks in a medieval monastery, just like in any profession or calling, had its pros and cons. while they were expected to live simply with few possessions, attend services at all hours of the day and night, and perhaps even take a vow of silence, monks could at least benefit from a secure roof over their heads. another plus was a regular food supply which was of a much higher standard than the vast majority of the medieval population had access to. besides attempting to get closer to god through their physical sacrifices and religious studies, monks could be very useful to the community by educating the youth of the aristocracy and producing books and illuminated manuscripts which have since proved to be invaluable records of medieval life for modern historians.

from the 3rd century ce there developed a trend in egypt and syria which saw some christians decide to live the life of a solitary hermit or ascetic. they did this because they thought that without any material- or worldly distractions they would achieve a greater understanding of and closeness to god. in addition, whenever early christians were persecuted they were sometimes forced by necessity to live in remote mountain areas where the essentials of life were lacking. as these individualists grew in number some of them began to live together in communities, continuing, though, to cut themselves off from the rest of society and devoting themselves entirely to prayer and the study of scriptures. initially, members of these communities still lived essentially solitary lives and only gathered together for religious services. their leader, an abba (hence the later ‘abbot’) presided over these individualists – they were called monachos in greek for that reason, which is derived from mono meaning ‘one’, and which is the origin of the word ‘monk’. over time, within this early form of the monastery, a more communal attitude to daily life developed where members shared the labour needed to keep themselves self-sufficient and they shared accommodation and meals. •
