  • Title: Double Monasticism in the Greek East: Eighth Through Fifteenth Centuries [the author argues that double houses were not suppressed by Eastern ecclesiastical authorities to the point of disappearance; in fact new ones were built even in Constantinople throughout the period; the confusion comes in part from mixed houses, in which monks and nuns lived in the same space and were abolished due to sexual improprieties].
