Benedict. The "Ordo Camaldulensium" (O.Camald.) was established by S. Romuald (ca.950-1027) in Camaldoli (near Arezzo in Tuscany, Italy). Romuald attempted to merge the cenobitical life of the West with the eremitical life of the East (nicely illustrated by this excerpt from their 'Brief Rule': "Sit in your cell as in Paradise"), and he also (re)introduced the idea of the lavra in Western monasticism. Feature of the rules is an extreme way of ascetism and rigour, making the Camaldolese order one of the most severe orders of all times (e.g. most of the time an abstinence on water and bread & living in separate cells). Romuald did not leave any written rule though ; the first attempts were made in 1080 by Rudolph I and the rules underwent changes over time. This work is a second edition of the rules published in 1671], R96665
