Re-monking the Church After Christendom

For those interested in new monasticism, check out Stewart Murray Williams’s engaging summary of the Anabaptist tradition over at Sustainable Traditions which explores the ways ‘new monasticism’ is drawing on both Celtic Christianity and the Anabaptist tradition.

“In the 16th century the Protestant Reformers rejected the two-tier Christianity that had developed during the Christendom era – dissolving the monasteries to remove the top tier. Anabaptists also rejected two-tier Christianity but abolished the lower tier, calling all Christians to radical discipleship – a lay monastic movement.” – Stuart Murray Williams
