The brother’s house was finally closed after an evil beast ate one of them.

the brother's house = monster (evil beast) + y (from finally closed or end of finally and coming after evil beast) and a (one) and ate referring to the a inside the others = monastery

Edit: Nevermind, now see this one's already solved.

episcopal. I think I spelled that right.

Even though I did not do too great with this riddle I thought it was awesome. It got you thinking in different ways and they were very clever. I'd love to see more in the future. Thank you, hugemonkey.
