If one has interest in authentic oriental monasticism, what is he to do? If interest is to be in Wadi El Natrun, there are no Coptic Catholic monasteries. Unfortunate as Egypt is birthplace of monasticism. In Syria, I am not sure. Can someone point me to this?
I wish I was allowed in a Syriac Orthodox so I could be in monastery in Syria.
Or even Georgian Orthodox, though not as interested in Eastern orthodox tradition as much as Oriental orthodox, like the last stylite: huffingtonpost.com/2013/0…n_3950192.html
Can someone point me to a Syriac or Alexandrian monastery where a Syro-malabar would be allowed? I can speak Malayalam and arabic and english. Thanks
