Journalist Bianco, who has lived among Trappist monks in the U.S. and France, reports on the rigors, routines, and rituals of the monks' daily lives. Bianco recounts how he sang psalms in choir, ate vegetarian at the monastic table, slept under the communal roof, and worked every day. New monks speak openly of their past and the conflicting calls of solitude and solidarity. Photographs.
