Anchorites are those ascetic hermits who embraced the highest degree of monastic life by retreating into the Egyptian desert and living in complete seclusion and self-mortification.
The annals of the Coptic Orthodox Church abound with anchorites, who spend their life in constant communion with Christ, immersed in prayer and meditation.
