I was flipping through the TV guide, desperate for a little bit of rest & relaxation, and this documentary happened to be playing.
I thought it was nicely done. They go on a tour of Orthodox Monastaries, beginning in Egypt and ending in Moscow, with the Jesus Prayer being sort of a theme.
One thing stuck out to me, though; that is, the Egyptian Monastics seemed to be wearing hats throughout the Liturgy. Weird, I know, but that's what I noticed. Is this a common practice of Monastics?
