Hermitage (religious retreat)

Although today's meaning is a place where a hermit lives in seclusion from the world, hermitage was more used to mean a building or settlement where a person or a group of people lived religiously, in seclusion. When included in the name of continental European properties or churches, any meaning is imprecise, may refer to some distant period of the history of what is today a property, either a normal parish church, or ceased to have any religious function some time ago. Secondary churches or establishments run from a monastery were called "hermitages". In the 18th century, some owners of English country houses equipped their gardens with a "hermitage", sometimes a Gothic ruin, but sometimes, as at Painshill Park, a romantic hut which a "hermit" was recruited to occupy; the so-called Ermita de San Pelayo y San Isidoro is the ruins of a Romanesque church from Ávila, that ended several hundred miles away, as a garden feature in the Buen Retiro Park in Madrid. A hermitage is any type of domestic dwelling.

While the level of isolation can vary more than not it is associated with a nearby monastery. Hermitages consist of at least one detached room, or sometimes a dedicated space within an open floor plan building, for religious devotion, basic sleeping accommodations, a domestic cooking range, suitable for the ascetic lifestyle of the inhabitant. Depending on the work of the hermit, premises such as a studio, workshop or chapel may be attached or sited in proximity; the first hermitages were located in natural caves, temple ruins, simple huts in forests and deserts. Around the time of early fourth century, the spiritual retreats of the Desert Fathers, who had chosen to live apart from society in the relative isolation of the Nitrian Desert of Egypt, began to attract the attention of the wider Christian community; the piety of such hermits attracted both laity and other would-be ascetics, forming the first cenobitic communities called "sketes", such as Nitria and Kellia. Within a short time and more people arrived to adopt the teachings and lifestyle of these hermits, there began by necessity a mutual exchange of labour and shared goods between them, forming the first monastic communities.

In the feudal period of the Middle Ages, both monasteries and hermitages alike were endowed by royalty and nobility in return for prayers being said for their family, believing it to beneficial to the state of their soul. Carthusian monks live in a one-room cell or building, with areas for study, sleep and preparation of meals. Most Carthusians live a solitary life, meeting with their brethren for communion, for shared meals on holy days, again irregularly for nature walks, where they are encouraged to have simple discussions about their spiritual life. In the modern era, hermitages are abutted to monasteries, or located on their grounds, being occupied by monks who receive dispensation from their abbot or prior to live a semi-solitary life. However, hermitages can be found in a variety of settings, from isolated rural locations, houses in large cities, high-rise blocks of flats, depending on the hermit's means. Examples of hermitages in Western Christian tradition: The Grande Chartreuse in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, motherhouse of the Carthusian Order.

New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, United States Camaldolese Hermitage in Bielany, Kraków, Poland Hermitage of Santa María de Lara, a Visigothic building in northern Spain built as a normal church, it passed to a monastery before being abandoned. A poustinia is a small sparsely furnished cabin or room where a person goes to pray and fast alone in the presence of God; the word poustinia has its origin in the Russian word for desert. A person called to live permanently in a poustinia is called a poustinik. A poustinik is one, called by God to live life in the desert, alone with God in the service of humanity through prayer and availability to those who might call upon him or her; those called to life in the poustinia were not uncommon in Russia prior to the suppression of Christianity in the early 20th century. In this Eastern Christian expression of the eremitic vocation poustiniks are not solitary but are part of the local community to which they are called; the poustinik is God's people, in communion with the Church.

One who experienced the call "...to the poustinia had first, after securing the blessing of their spiritual director, to find a village. He did this through pilgrimage and prayer. Once having discovered the village to which he felt God drawing him, the poustinik went to the elders and asked permission to live there as a poustinik. Permission was given, as Russians were glad to have a poustinik praying for them; the poustinik lives alone praying for his own salvation, the salvation of the world, for the community that God has blessed for him to be a member. Traditionally, The poustinik was available to the people; when there were special needs, such as a fire to fight or hay to bring in, the poustinik would help. And whenever anyone had something they wanted to talk about—a question about prayer, a problem, a special joy or sorrow—they could go to the poustinik; the poustinik is one who listens, shares the love of Christ with all whom he encounters, as well as a cup of tea or some food. The poustinia was introduced to Roman Catholic spirituality by the Catholic social activist Catherine Doherty in her best-selling book Poustinia: Christian Spirituality of the East for
