Alasdair MacIntyre calls for such communities at the end of After Virtue (1981), and books like Schools for Conversion: 12 Marks of the New Monasticism (2005) highlight their growing presence today. John McClure likewise documents neo-monastic communities as contemporary literary ideals in Partial Faiths: Postsecular Fiction in the Age of Pynchon and Morrison (2007).
