Mormon Monastery is run by a humble “monk,” who gives grateful thanks and praise to the builder. To contact the monk, email To those who know who I am, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t link or refer to me by name.

Though LDS, the Monk grew up in a non-LDS city in a non-LDS state and received the majority of his education at non-LDS Universities. He does not advocate sequestering oneself from society socially or intellectually, as might be implied in the title Mormon Monastery. To the contrary, the monk believes, paraphrasing a wise man, that those who will not risk exposure to experiences, people, or ideas that are not obviously related to some Church word or program will live less abundant and meaningful lives than the Creator intends.

Mormon Monastery is intended to be a collection of resources for guiding others into further light, knowledge, and understanding of the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the scriptures, and the temple. I chose the url because a monastery implies a quiet place of study and meditation, focused on scripture and (temple) doctrine. Since it’s a “monastery” I choose as my admin name “The Monk” because monks run the monasteries :)

The Monk has studied Biblical and ancient Near Eastern languages, and to a lesser extent history and linguistics. He hopes one day to transfer to a monastery that will pay him to teach other monks. Vows of poverty aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

If you’d like to support me in my research for this page and other projects, I enjoy receiving kind words via email and other tokens of appreciation.
