The last few years have seen a surge of interest in monasticism, rules, liturgies, and all kind of orthodox practices, in many unexpected circles. At the same time, the daily life of Catholic Orders are little known to outsiders. What are monastic Orders, and what's behind the renewed appeal? Post-evangelical poet David Benjamin Blower and Passionist priest Nicholas Postlethwaite talk about the history behind orders, the rise of 'new monasticism', and the tensions between hierarchy and autonomy that lie behind the whole concept.
