Some were wealthy, some were not, what mattered most was their inner commitment to God and the acceptance of the ascetic passage in their quest for unification with God. From within the rugged terrain of the, Lower Egyptian to the Sinai Desert, these individuals came to live out there remaining existence among the most barren and hospitable area.
