The Refectory
Where Monks Ate


Monks eating in the Refectory -  Nash Ford Publishing
 
  • This was the monks' Dining Room.
  • The monks ate at long wooden tables. They were vegetarians.
  • They drank lots of beer because it was difficult to get clean fresh water.
  • One of the monks read from the Bible during the meal.
  • The rest of them were not allowed to speak, but they used lots of sign-language!
