Monastic order

A monastic order is a regular religious order whose clerics, retired from the mundane life, have taken religious vows and living a common ideal of perfection as defined by the guidelines of a specific religious rule. The diversity of the rules, their flexibility of interpretation and the religious or apostolic goals pursued, allow a great diversity: contemplative, Hospitalier or military orders.
