Monastic Monks, Mystics etcs. writings on Materialism?


#1

I would like to read about Monastic monks or mystics that wrote from a Catholic position about materialism and the escape from it. Can anyone point me to online sources or books? thanks

I would like to compare this to other religions escape from the material world if that helps any.
