Saint John Cassian was a 4th-century Ascetic monk who was notable for his writings of mysticism and early monasticism. One of his most important works is “De Institutis Coenobiorum.” In this work, Cassian describes early Christian hermits and monks who wandered the Egyptian desert in the 3rd-century. He focused on the community and organizational properties of these monks – or Cenobitic monasticism. He also describes their clothing, prayers, rules to live by, how to deal with temptation, and solutions to cure the eight most common vices. Ultimately, Cassian presses the need for community amongst monastic living.
