"Horarium" is Latin for "schedule."
The hermits living in the world adapt the following timetable to their own circumstances.  Cloisterite eremites who live in a laura attached to the cenobium will follow the same horarium as their cenobitic brothers and sisters.
The contemplative-active Cloisterites will follow an horarium more conducive to their way of life.
