Module 1 - An Introduction into the History of Monasticism
Unit 1 - The Deserts of the Near-East
Welcome to Pathway One: This is first unit of the first module of Pathway One.
We do hope that you will enjoy this fairly gentle start to the course.
All we want to do in the next little while is to show that monasticism does not arise out of thin air but rather developed and changed some key features of the earliest Christan way of life as they began to seek God alone, or in community or sometimes attempting to live alone and together all at once!
When we have looked at what the earliest monks and nuns inherited from the earliest Christians we’ll note three very different ways in which monasticism began to take shape.
