  • Abstract: Monastic life is a long-lasting experience of austerity in which the body assumes its role in a relationship of detachment from the exterior world and union with God. Yet this separation cannot be understood as the extinction of corporeal senses but rather as their readjustment in relation to the divine object. This leads to the elaboration of a doctrine of spiritual senses which involuntarily theorises a poetics of the senses in which the body is considered in terms of its relationship to purifying asceticism and its transfiguration by God’s desire.
