Ilość pożywienia i posiłków oraz czas ich spożywania w klasztorach starożytnych
The amount and timing of meals in ancient monasteries
Languages of publication
The amount and timing of meals in various monasteries evolved with the development of Christian monasticism. Although he founded numerous communities, the creator of the first “Rule,” Pachomius, did not see the need to precisely regulate this issue. However, successive authors writing rules increasingly addressed this problem. An analysis of selected rules reveals that a peak in the development of monastic legislation concerning this matter was the rules of Benedict and the mysterious Master, which regulated even the amount of bread that monks should eat each day.
