  • Title: Monachesimo femminile nell' Italia centrale (sec. xv) [New women's orders were limited by thirteenth-century conciliar decrees requiring that all monastics accept existing rules. Nevertheless, communities of penitent women grew up under episcopal supervision. Some adopted the Augustinian or the Benedictine rule and claustration. Only in the fifteenth century would the papacy give final approval to the Franciscan Third Order. More traditional women's houses tended to follow the Augustinian rule].
