Quick Reference

St Romuald founded a monastery at Camaldoli, near Arezzo, between 1012 and 1023; its ideal was the minimum of communal ties. A hospice which he founded at Fontebuona developed as a coenobitic house; the two were meant to complement each other. Monastic practice has varied in the different daughter houses.
