Nun

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Nun is a term used to describe a woman who has professed vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience within the Roman Catholic tradition. Technically it applies to women living in a cloistered community, but it is now often used to refer to religious women active in ministry to the world. The more traditional term for such women is "sister." Orders for women were established by Saints Basil, Benedict, Augustine, and Francis. Today nuns carry out much of the behind-the-scenes work of education and ministering to the sick and needy.
