Headword: Σεμνεῖον
Adler number: sigma,223
Translated headword: sacred place, monastery
Vetting Status: high
[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.
Greek Original:
Σεμνεῖον: τὸ μοναστήριον, ἐν ᾧ μονούμενοι οἱ ἀσκηταὶ τὰ τοῦ σεμνοῦ βίου μυστήρια τελοῦνται, μηδεὶς μηδὲν κομίζοντες, μὴ ποτὸν μὴ σιτίον μηδέ τι τῶν ἄλλων, ὅσα πρὸς τὰς τοῦ σώματος χρείας ἀναγκαῖα, ἀλλὰ νόμους καὶ λόγια θεσπισθέντα διὰ προφητῶν, καὶ ὕμνους, καὶ τἄλλα, οἷς ἐπιστήμη καὶ εὐσέβεια συναύξονταί τε καὶ τελειοῦνται. τὸ δ' ἐξ ἑωθινοῦ μέχρις ἑσπέρας διάστημα σύμπαν ἐστὶν αὐτοῖς ἄσκησις: σιτίον γὰρ ἢ ποτὸν οὐδεὶς ἂν αὐτῶν προσενέγκοιτο πρὸ ἡλίου δύσεως.
George the Monk, Chronicon 333.1-12.
cf. theta 228.
