The Rise and Fall of Catholic Religious Orders
The Rise and Fall of Catholic Religious Orders (October 1994)
A Social Movement Perspective
Patricia Wittberg - Author

"It is a fine example of how to apply theoretical analysis to historical material in a way that sheds light on a contemporary social phenomenon.
