Monasteries: Places of Spirituality and Seclusion Around the World : Immerse yourself in the mysterious cosmos of the monastic world. Monasteries are places of spirituality, closely binding faith and learning.

In introducing the world of the monasteries with its unique artistic and architectural forms, this book asks such questions as what were the rules that governed life in the monasteries and convents?
