      > The concept of monks all living together under one roof and under
      the rule of a single Father is attributed to St Pachomios. (292-
      348). At this same time, St. Pachomius' sister became the first nun
      of a monastery of women (convent). It is to be believed that
      monasticism must have been started in the Syrian Orthodox Church
      around this time and from the very first day of inception of the
      Monasticism, they must have used the Masanphto (Head cover) As
      Christianity grew and diversified, so did the style of monasticism.
      In the East, monastic norms came to be regularized through the
      writings of St. Basil the Great (330-379)
