The Hermitage is, in the Orthodox tradition, a “hesychasterion”, a Hermitage established with the blessing of the Bishop but owned by the resident of the Hermitage. It is also a “stavropegial” institution, a term usually used in reference to a Monastery which falls directly under the “omophorion” (authority) of the Primate of a Church rather than under the local Diocesan Bishop.

The Hermitage and the Hermit are under the canonical jurisdiction of His Eminence, Seraphim, Metropolitan Archbishop of the Holy Metropolis of Glastonbury and Primate of the British Orthodox Church within the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria.
