Saint Benedict's influence on the Internet

In 1995, the Monastery of Christ in the Desert produced a website,, that by 1996 had attained a market reach of 12% of online users — a reach that ranked it among the top five online destinations in the world, and thus among Yahoo, Netscape and the other most trafficed sites of the early years of the Internet.

NextSribe is an internet pioneer. Its genesis was in 1994 at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert, and its mission was clarified through the composition of a strategic technology plan (in 1996-1997) for the Vatican.

NextScribe's mission is to exploit the potential of digital networks to give new life to classical spiritual practices, so that people will be sanctified in their communities and relationships.
