Question and answer
In modern day monasteries, monks remain silent during certain parts of the day. To which figure can this practice be attributed?
(1) Old Testament roots In the book Silence, The Still Small Voice of God, Andrew March establishes the roots of silence doctrine in the Psalms attributed to David. [ (2) The Trappist rubric "Living in silence" illustrates centuries-old hand gestures which were "developed to convey basic communication of work and spirit" (3) Benedictine Silence plays a salient role in the Benedictine rule. It
is thought that by clearing the mind of distraction, one may listen more attentively to the deity. ]
