Description

We often talk about what to include or not to include in the study of religious reclusion. In this session, we will deliberately explore those movements or individuals that are “anchoritic adjacent,” rather than directly anchoritic or reclusive. What do these “neighbors” have to say? How do they intersect with religious withdrawal? How do they enhance our study of reclusion, withdrawal, and enclosure? Michelle M. Sauer
