What is Monastery?

A monastery is a private building where a group of people who have dedicated their lives to seclusion and, according to religious vows, live.

Those who live in Catholic monasteries are monks or nuns, men and women who live a life of abstinence from pleasure for spiritual purposes.

These people either live alone or live with other monks.

Monastery sometimes has groups of buildings, including workplaces, libraries and even hospitals.

People that live in monasteries are expected to dedicate all their life to their monestry.

The head of a Catholic monastery is often called Abbot.
