From 12th century crusaders who became hermits on a mountain in the deserts of northern Palestine to the founding of communities in the great cities of Europe and eventually in the Americas and around the world, the history of our Carmelite brotherhood is intimately connected to the lives and stories of individual souls who sought out prayerful solitude together in the world.
