Christian Heritage 1307.05 Week #7 ~ Lesson #18 ~ October 03, 2016 Class and Reading Notes. (All material below is made by me via reading the assigned textbook and attending lectures. PowerPoints and Modules are NOT within these notes due to respected Plagiarism polices. Enjoy Learning!) Highlight = Important People Highlight = Important Concept Highlight = Key Terms Reading on “Monasticism”  Anthony of Egypt {ECH page 24}  Francis of Assisi {ECH page 61}  Clare of Assisi {ECH page 62}  Benedict of Nursia {ECH page 45} Monasticism {ECH page 24} (root word “monos” meaning alone) means “monkhood” a way of life for those who lay aside worldly pursuits to grow closer to a spiritual God. 1. Eremitism means to be ascetic in seclusion. Individuals isolate themselves from society in order to grow spiritually, by ways of methods of self-discipline. --- Displayed by Anthony of Egypt {ECH page 24} --- This was mentioned in the book “Life of Anthony” written by Athanasius 2. Coenobitism means to be ascetic within a community of other ascetics or in other words “Cenobites”. --- Displayed by Pachomius. --- This was mentioned within the Pachomius rule. Spiritual warfare means times of unexplainable hardship due to evil spirits interfering with the Christian striving to press on. Various signs of spiritual warfare: financial regression, physical pain, sickness, lack of motivation to spend time with God, and thoughts of fear and doubt that the Christian isn’t causing. This is a spiritual fight to endure through the oppression, instead of humanly. Stigmata means wounds of Christ. Romans 8:17 says, “and if children, also heirs-- heirs of God and coheirs with Christ--seeing that we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.” Suffering as Christ suffered is joyfully welcomed by Christ-followers because the purpose of Life is to be Christ-like and commune with Him. Asceticism means applying methods to your life to increase general self- discipline to deepen Spiritually. --- “Striving towards God is avoiding one’s desires,” said Pelagius on page 46 of ECH. ^ (Remember from Exam #1 material, Pelagius was a Christian ascetic who affirmed that God gave people free will with deciding to do good or to do evil. He also denied that the burden of sin was originally from the “The Fall” of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3)) See -> Mendicant means a beggar regarding Monasticism. Hagiography means writings of the saints. Anthony of Egypt is the "father" of Christian Monasticism. He was known for his asceticism and isolation (Eremitism) in the Egyptian desert. Anthony’s change of life perception began after his parents died. He started to reflect on how the Apostles left everything and followed Jesus. He received two revelations from God about giving to the poor and trusting in God regarding days and tomorrow’s logistics. While living a life of Monasticism, he underwent spiritual warfare during his time in a tomb. After standing the test, God encouraged him and he realized his spiritual maturity. His spiritual maturity was an effect of his time practicing Eremitism. Francis of Assisi is the model of mendicant monasticism (begging and self-denial) with his street-preaching and life of voluntary poverty. He introduced the Christian nativity scene and tradition. He is also known as a preacher to animals --Saint of animals and creation. Additionally, during his prayers, he included giving thanks to God for "Brother Sun" and "Sister Moon." He reached higher spirituality but towards left-field. Clare of Assisi is the founder of the “Poor Clares”. She reflected similar values as Francis of Assisi. She wrote about "Apostolic poverty". This document expressed obedience, humility, lacking possessions, and owning lots of land for the sack of seclusion. "This land shall not be cultivated except as a garden for the sister’s own needs." In a time where women were looked on as less, Clare became a perception changer. She took on the life of a monk which is normally done by men. Benedict of Nursia is the "father" of Western Christian Monasticism. He taught mostly regarding the guidelines of practicing Monasticism. Specifically, He often spoke of living without possessions. He taught following in the sufferings of Christ through obedience, humility, and selflessness as far as lacking in possessions. ^ Concept: “Storing up treasures in Heaven and not on Earth” ~ Matthew   [n] 6:19-20 “Don’t collect for yourselves treasures 20on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
