Duplicates material at Monastery. There is also Monasticism, which duplicates efforts. --Wetman 18:57, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)

This needs reorganization. -Slash- 06:46, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

A bit repetitive, don't you think?[edit]

I don't find it a problem that the article might duplicate some of the text in monastisicm article, but the article in and of itself seems to rehash the same points a few times (particularly the dispute about the origins of cenobitic monasticism). -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. 08:15, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Name Change[edit]

The word "cenobitic" is an adjective, and as such is inappropriate for the title of an encyclopedic article. I would suggest changing the namespace for this article either to Cenobium (which is the noun form of the word) or Cenobitic Monasticism. Based on the tone of the article, I would think the latter to be more appropriate. Any input? MishaPan 14:05, 20 August 2007 (UTC)


I'd like some help in thinking about and adding a section on early Jewish (second temple era) monasticism. The Therapeutae as described by Philo of Alexandria seem to fit very well into this category. Aharon (talk) 05:27, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

You mean the Therapeutae? Dimadick (talk) 17:41, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the Therapeutae. Thanks for you correction. Aharon (talk) 00:58, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
