Fils et filles de Saint Bruno
Sons & daughters of Saint Bruno

For nine centuries, contemplative Catholic monks, sons and daughters of St. Bruno, have been striving to be faithful to the call he received from God. We hope that you will find a presentation of this life apart interesting.

If you are short of time and unfamiliar with Carthusians this option : Carthusian nuns & monks, who we are ?, will provide some answers to your questions. For more details, the three options which follow give more information concerning the monks, the nuns and the Order.

In Texts - Photographs texts written by or about the Carthusians, illustrations, suggestions for further research, and information on the history and liturgy of the Order are presented.
