Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 MONKS VS FRIARS Monks Friars A Monk takes his vows and commits to a particularself-sufficient community consisting only of Monks. He serves the church through devotion. Differences: A Friar takes his vows and commits to a large area,a province, and is supported throughout donations.They will usually travel about their area and stay in a variety of places in the province they are committed to. He/she serves the church by working among laypeople. Politics: The first Medieval Monks adhered to the Benadictine Rule which wasestablished by St. Benadictine in529 A.D. Dufferent orders of Medieval Monks were also established during the Middle Ages The two principal orders are the Franciscans and the Dominicans both founded in the early 13th century. In both cases their basic valueswere similar to any other monastic order.The chief difference was Friars took preaching asa central mission. Instead of retreating from the world, as other monks did, the Friars went into the world to preach the Word of God. Education: Monks used ancient writingsfrom Roman and Greek resources to teach their students while most of theeducational courses weremostly based on superstitionsand beliefs. Students often learned more when they directly came in contact withtrappers, hunters, poachers and serfs as they could offerpractical knowledge. Their preaching activities and their stand against heresy required careful training, andthe educational facilities developed by the mendicant orders, and at the universities, marka significant stage in the history of education. Elizabeth Gonzalez Period 3/4 Religion: Monks belong to one kind or religious order, an importantpart of this type of religious order is "stability" staying in one place. So they're very much developed to a life of prayer in a small communityand not really out in the worldmuch. These communities are mostly self-supporting. This means there is usually somekind of community work thatpays for the expenses of the community. Friars belong to a different kind of religious order. The most important thing about thesereligious orders is that they beg for money tosupport themselves. This naturally involvesthem being more involved with the communitytypically than a monk would be. Similarities between Monks and Friars Both friars and monks take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience .They do not have individual poverty ( everything is owned in common, though sometimes this can be a fair amount of poverty/money). Theypromise not to marry and seek to live chastely. They are all committedto obedience. There is a "superior" in each religious order which they must obey in all things not contrary to good mortals. The superior in turn is obedient to some other religious authority (depending on the structure of the order)
