[Meaning] the hermitage, in which the ascetics in solitude practice the mysteries of the pious life, no one bringing anything, not drink nor food not anything else, such as is necessary for the needs of the body, but laws and sayings divinely uttered by the prophets, and hymns, and the other things with which understanding and piety are increased and perfected. The whole space of time from dawn to evening is an ascetic exercise for them; for no one of them would take food or drink before the setting of the sun.
