Abstract

The thesis examines the understanding of authority and the practice of obedience by a selected group of women religious in Australia. A synopsis of how theologians understand obedience along with what the law states, is presented, along with the voices of the women themselves! They detail the change from living in a hierarchical structure to today's communitarian based model.
