"To those who have taken up the solitary life[1] to conduct themselves as [sc. befitting the] solitary, and for him who has obtained the condition of priesthood to serve as priest in a holy manner, and for each to maintain [the discipline] which he has practiced."
Greek Original:
Μονήρης βίος. τοῖς τὸν μονήρη ἐπανῃρημένοις βίον οὕτω διάγειν ὡς μονήρη, καὶ τὸν ἱερᾶσθαι λαχόντα ὁσίως ἱερατεύειν, καὶ ἕκαστον ἃ ἤσκηται μετιέναι.
The headword phrase occurs in the accusative in Hesychius mu1607, as it does in the quotation (of unknown origin) appended here. Hesychius glosses the phrase with μοναχικὸν βίον "monastic life."
[1] This verb, ἐπαναιρέομαι , is frequently used to describe the choice of a particular way of life (often but not necessarily religious).
