The Cistercians of the Strict Observance are a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church, also known as “Trappists” or “Trappistines”. These monks and nuns follow the rule of St. Benedict. The Trappists live under the ideals of pray and work with the work paying for repairs and maintaining the Abby. The day is split into equal eight hour parts of prayer, work and sleep. The Trappist also give much of their money to charity. This work is done in observance of God and is considered a type of prayer on its own. Generally speaking while working is looked down upon giving birth to the myth that Trappists take a vow of science. In this episode we sample Trappist cheeses and beers from around the world.
