At the age of twenty he became a monk at Monte Cassino. Desiring greater perfection, he retired to a hermitic life. He then came to Spain, and at the beginning of the 11th century he founded in Tuscany, in the valley of the Camáldula (Campo di Maldoli), the Camaldolese Order, which gives the religious a choice between solitary life, with rigorous austerities. He died at one hundred and twenty years of age.
