Monks, Monasteries and Monasticism

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic, see this page.

A group for discussing all things monastic: fictional or historical. Whether your penchant is for curling up with Cadfael or careering round a Carthusian monastery this group is for you.
