Answer 1: The monks live in monasteries.

Answer 2: I sometimes wonder why questioners, here, ask questions about monks and friars as if they were something of the past. They exist, today; and live, today, much as they lived centuries ago. Little, in fact, has changed.

And so, then, the first answer, which uses the present-tense "live," and not the past-tense "lived," is accurate in that as well as in that, yes, monks live (and lived, too, in the past) in monasteries.

For more detail, please see the Wiki Answers article/answer that I wrote about how the lives of monks and friars differ. I've placed a link to it down in the "sources and related links" section of this web page, below.
