women as theological figures[edit]

Can someone more knowledgeable on the subject add relevant comments to the relevant sections of women as theological figures.

nuns[edit]

according to the abbey article: abbeys can be either monasteries (which can be male (monk) or female (nun) based) or convents, which are not occupied by nuns or monks but instead by priests, friars, and religious sisters and/or brothers. While colloquially referred to as nuns, religious sisters like the ones who run hospitals are technically not, nuns being involved in isolated contemplation and not community service, and similarly the men who live in convents are not monks. I have no idea if the abbey article is correct, but I think having both articles say the same thing is important; if someone knows better than me, please change both articles, not Insert non-formatted text here -- Akb4 21:10, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

some discussion with [User:HarvardOxon] leads me to the conclusion that this article and several related ones are factually messed up beyond the ability of anyone not fairly familiar with the structure of the catholic church to correct. Abbess, Convent, Abbey, and probably Abbot and Friar should probably be checked out by an expert; Abbey should probably be tagged as containing inaccuracies. -- Akb4 12:38, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Crosier[edit]

I saw a request for citation next to the line about abbesses carrying a crosier. I did a bit of research and added one. However, I came to question the structure of the sentence, as the source made it sound quite common for an abbess to carry a crosier. Does anyone have any further information on this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zujine (talkcontribs) 14:49, 14 November 2011
