The structure of the monastic family of Subiaco, unlike other Benedictine communities, has a physiognomy all its own on account of the statute that unites the two monasteries. The Sanctuary at the Holy Grotto and the Monastery of St. Scholastica are two distinct houses but one single community.
Therefore, the monks of Subiaco, in spite of their vow of stability, belong to two monasteries. Residing in one or the other depends exclusively on the Abbot. This situation conditions not only the juridical rapport between the two monasteries but the community life therein as well.
For that which concerns their ordinary administration and internal organization, the communities of Sacro Speco and St. Scholastica act independently of one another. For all other matters, on the other hand, …
The Monastery of St. Scholastica is built half way up the side of the mountain where two valleys meet and above the place where was the highest of Nero's lakes. It is the only monastery of the twelve ones wanted by St. Benedict along the valley of the Aniene not to have been destroyed by …
By climbing the Talèo one reaches the little wood of holmoaks with a series of steps leading to the shrine which is as it were spluttered against the rock, a real "swallow's nest", as it seemed to Pius II in 1461.
The beauty of the shrine, which comprises two churches one above the other and …
St. Benedict organizes the monastic life on three grand axes on which every endeavour spins and which grantees the equilibrium of the vocation: common prayer, personal prayer and lectio, work.
St. Benedict makes reference to activities that have always been connected to the monastic life: hospitality, education of children, the cultivation of art and intellectual work. The risks regarding these things are never lacking, and it is not out of place to point out one or two of these aspects.
The monastery is not primarily a place for receiving guests nor can a school, college or university be one of its ends; it is not even a conservatory or an academy. It can however, without a doubt, have one or another of these activities as long as the essence of the Rule of St. Benedict is …
Manual and intellectual work is not only an integral part of St. Benedict's rule, but also its products in all the monasteries are all the time considered fundamental to the daily life of the monks and for their diffusion among people who want to buy and use them.
It is the same in the Subiaco monasteries. The meticulousness, the minuteness adopted in the search of particular herbs in order to prepare infusions an tisanes or to distil liqueur or to product handicrafts or to spread books and multimedia works prove the capacity of answer with the same promptness to requirements in and out of the monastery.
The processing techniques are the traditional ones, experienced for centuries as excellent ones and, so, still in use.
