    Abstract

    In this the second of two articles Kevin O'Gorman continues his exploration of the influence of Western monasticism on hospitality. He shows how monastic hospitality evolved to became the foundation of modern hospitality in the secular states. Ewan MacPhee reports on receiving monastic hospitality almost 1,500 years after St Benedict. The article concludes with a set of modern principles of hospitality derived from St Benedict's Rule, which are relevant to today.
