Hermits and holy beggars try to simplify their life. Without work or family, it's hard to do much that's wrong. The great abdication. Most find they have too much time to themselves, however, and prefer to be a monk, who is told what to do and has his time filled up with simple activity. Friars make a much harder choice. Though without family, they are in the world nad active. The same for teaching nuns nad warrior monks.
