  • Title: Monasteri benedettini femminili a Milano prima della riforma [Reform of women's monasteries in Milan, especially when the nuns resisted, required support from ecclesiastical and lay authorities. These authorities occasionally failed to act in concert. Strict enclosure, one of the hardest reforms to impose, served to ameliorate one problem, nuns acting out the hostilities among their kindred. Even nuns desirous of living strict lives had difficulties finding acceptable confessors and visitors to meet their spiritual needs].
