ANCHORITE. The anachoresis was the flight of insolvent debtors deep into the desert to avoid repayment often to live as brigands. Moses and David fled in this way from Pharaoh and Saul, and the term was applied to them. Origen Hom. Jer. 14,16 and 20,8 makes a religious model of Jeremiah’s anachoresis. The word was applied by Athanasius to St. Anthony and became common in Greek in the sense of detachment from the world, even if only in habits and interests St. Basil of Caesarea, e.g.. Jerome and John Cassian latinized it, but it was reserved for the more prestigious forms of eremitic life and has passed with this meaning into modern languages.Extreme Hermits: The Anchorites | Citydesert holidaymapq
