Women have lived the cistercian life almost as long as have men. Cistercian abbots founded some houses of nuns, the General Chapter authorized some, while trying to stem the tide. Most 'cistercian' communities of women adopted the habit and the usages of the White Monks without being juridically incorporated into the Order. These fascinating studies trace cistercian nuns from their twelfth-century beginnings to the modern day.
