Monachesimo e modernità [Monasticism and modernity]

la Società Degli Individui 30:71-78 (2007)

Abstract
La modernità ha prodotto un duplice e contraddittorio risultato: la crisi del sa­cro e la nascita di domande di senso prevalentemente orien­tate verso scelte religiose e comunitarie. Malgrado la crisi delle vocazioni sa­cer­dotali, molte nuove vocazioni sono rivolte verso ordini monastici carat­te­rizzati da regole rigide. Si tratta di una fuga dal mondo che modula in senso re­ligioso il bisogno di comunità nel senso sociologico classico, cioè come tota­lità organica e, affondando le sue radici nel cristianesimo dei primi due secoli, percorre l’intera storia della cristianità, in particolare cattolica, e si manifesta con particolare vividezza nelle epoche di trasformazione, di passaggio da un pre­sente caotico a un futuro in cui non si intravvedono tracce di ordine pos­sibile.Modernity brought about a twofold and contradictory result: religious crisis and the birth of individual searches for meaning, mostly directed toward religious commu­nity and order. In spite of the crisis of sacerdotal callings, a lot of new reli­gious vocations opt for the monastic orders . This is a flight from the world which articulates religiously the need for community in its standard sociological sense, namely as an organic whole, and it goes back to the beginnings of Christianity, especially catholic, running through its whole history. This need for community shows up especially in ages of change, that is when societies shift from a chaotic present to a future where traces of a possible order cannot be seen
