The Monastery

The Monastery is a BBC documentary following five laymen on a spiritual journey in a Benedictine monastery to discover if the 1,500-year-old monastic tradition has anything to offer a new generation.

Although from very different backgrounds, all five participants share a desire to see if life holds any greater meaning. They will be expected to abide by the monastery’s rules, with a strict timetable of instruction, study, prayer, reflection and routine work duties.

The Monastery, filmed at Worth Abbey in West Sussex, follows them on their remarkable journey to see if the lessons learnt have the power to transform their everyday lives.
