Unruly Catholic Nuns explores the voices of present and previous Catholic nuns and, by means of doing so, contributes to the worldwide dialog concerning the position of ladies within the Catholic Church this day. via autobiography, fiction, poetry, and prose, Sisters and previous nuns write approximately their lived reports with Catholicism, either according and in clash with the institutional Church. via their tales we learn the way those ladies act out their missions of social justice, problem cultural and governmental rules, and try to reconcile their unruliness with their non secular orders and the strictures of the church hierarchy. At a time while questions of gender, faith, race, and sexuality are upsetting excessive debate inside Catholicism and different Christian traditions, and whilst faith is usually invoked in political rhetoric, those tales supply an essential corrective to our modern realizing of the position of girls and nuns within the Roman Catholic Church.
