    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This volume examines the special connection between monasticism and nature. From the outset, monks looked for sites that marked the boundaries between nature and culture: deserts, mountains, and islands. The sea quickly took the place of the desert where the first months sought retreat. Thus, along with mountain monasteries, monastic islands are part of the foundation of Western monasticism, on which later generations of monks would build.
