    Benedictine Monks - the attractiveness of the Monastic life It is clear that life in a Benedictine monastery appealed to many different kinds of people in the Middle Ages. Those of a spiritual turn of mind found in the monastic life the opportunity of giving themselves wholly to God as Benedictine monks. Study time allows the monk to develop his understanding of theology and other subjects which will feed his spiritual life. In the early years of a monk’s life in the monastery he will pursue a regular course of studies, initially focusing on finding out more about the monastic life, its history and theology, the liturgy and developing his understanding of the Catholic faith.
