Abstract

The main purpose of this article is to analyze the word usage of St. Basil the Great concerning those who have chosen the ascetic path and their associations, as well as his possible motives for selecting a particular way of expression. Basil the Great in his “Rules” didn't want to call those who lived in his communities monks, ascetics and monastics, and the community, fraternities and their own terms. Perhaps Basil rejected all of the actual monastic dictionary, because he didn't want to sharply contrast monks and lay people, but desired to consider his brothers in asceticism merely as consequent Christians.
