NOTE: The 96 women interviewed for this research project are (or were) members of the following religious communities. Listed first is the official title of the group, according to the Official Catholic Directory, 1995 edition. If there are other names by which the group is commonly known, those follow. The initials that are given below and that women religious use after their names do not necessarily correspond to the English words; they may be based on an original Italian or French name or on an alternative usage. (For example: O.P. stands for Order of Preachers, another title used for Dominican Sisters and priests; and the initials used by the Religious Teachers Filippini—M.P.F.—come from the Italian, Maestre pie Filippini.) Asterisks indicate communities represented by women in the text.
