Ave Maria!

Fra Solanus tells us about how the how the early Irish monks lived in the years following the introduction of Christianity to Ireland. He describes, inter alia, the structure of the monastic settlements; the life, labours and prayer life of the monks; how the monastery was governed; and the formation of the postulants and novices. This was how the Irish monasteries existed prior to the 12th Century, after which time they lost their own monastic rules and were obliged to come under another rule such as the Rule of St. Benedict.
