Fun Facts about the Middle Age Monastery
There were different orders of monks. They differed on how strict they were and in some details on their rules. The main orders in Europe during the Middle Ages included the Benedictines, the Carthusians, and the Cistercians.
Each monastery had a center open area called a cloister.
Monks and nuns were generally the most educated people during the Middle Ages.
They spent much of their day in silence.
Sometimes monasteries owned a lot of land and were very wealthy due to the tithes of the local people.
A scribe may spend over a year copying a long book like the Bible.

Painting this scene inspired me to want to get away and spend a day in silence but I did painting this and did not leave my studio! Although it took more than a day in oil
