Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: Monasticism. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The monastic spirit in Christianity owed much to the example of its founder, who was himself unmarried, poor, and without a place "where to lay his head.“ Some of Christ's teachings, taken literally, also helped to exalt the worth of the monastic life.

At a very early period there were Christian men and women who abstained from marriage, flesh meat, and the use of wine, and gave themselves up to prayer, religious exercises, and works of charity. This they did in their homes, without abandoning their families and human society.

By the time of Gregory the Great monasticism was well established in the Christian Church. Its origin must be sought in the need, often felt by spiritually-minded men, of withdrawing from the world, from its temptations and its transitory pleasures to a life of solitude, prayer, and religious contemplation. Men, influenced by the monastic spirit, sought a closer approach to God.

The presentation covers the following:

Rule of St. Basil
St. Benedict
Establishing Monasteries
Role of Abbots
