St. Anthony the Great, an Egyptian, was born in 250 AD and was the first person in the Christian Church to live the distinctly monastic life. He heard the call from Christ when he was young, hearing the story of the rich young man called to sell what he had, give to the poor, and follow Him. Because of his excellent life and spiritual stature many who met him joined with zeal this most excellent monastic life, both near him, and in other new monasteries. St. Anthony died in great old age in 356 AD.
