"The first volume to explore various facets of contemporary change in consecrated religious life in selected central and eastern European countries, this book presents a series of studies of Catholic and Orthodox monasticism. With attention to changes in the economy, everyday life, organization, and social presence of monastic orders, contributors shed light on the impact of 20th and 21st century social and cultural processes - such as communism and its collapse, or the growth of new communication technologies - on life in the cloister. Bringing together research from various locations in central and eastern Europe, it will appeal to scholars and students of sociology, religious studies and theology, with interests in religious orders and transformations of religious life from a social perspective"-- Provided by publisher
