Abstract: This thesis examines to what degree the SDC charisma (founded by St George Preca in the early years of the 20th Century) can be considered as a continuing expression of a new form of monasticism. Monasticism pre-dates Christianity and the life of the Church. Christian monatiscism was with Anthony of Egypt’s move from city to desert. Like all other forms of spirituality, monasticism developed and took new forms to respond to the needs of the times. This research aims to examine the extent to which the Society of Christian Doctrine may be said to be an expression of the New Monasticism, which is being lived today in different groups of lay people around the world. Suggestions of a concrete number of proposals that can stimulate further discussion and critical analysis as a way for living the SDC charism more effectively will be offered.
