This article examines the general canonical principles which are applicable to decision-making in religious institutes. After situating these decisions in canonical context, it considers the nature of the authority exercised by religious superiors and the application of the general principles of administrative law to decision-making in religious institutes. It then illustrates this application using two particular examples as paradigms of administrative decision making: the decision to grant or refuse temporary profession in a religious institute and the transfer of a religious from one house to another. Finally, it gives an overview of the potential remedies available to people who feel themselves aggrieved by a superior's decision.
