Craig Monson seeks to relay the stories of five badly behaved nuns in Seventeenth Century Italy whose tales he found while doing research in the Vatican Archives He aims first for the book to bring to light these women who have been lost to obscurity for such a long time The second aim is to highlight that the hierarchical systems maintained by the Catholic Church with external control of convents were and are incapable of managing what goes on inside the sacred walls where no man may treadIn Seventeenth Century Italy families really only had two choices when it came to what to do with their female family members They could either marry them off and pay large dowries or they could pack them off to the convent This still reuired a dowry but only a fraction of the amount needed for marriage Because of this Monson points out many noble families only arranged marriages for one daughter sending the rest to a convent populated with women from similar affluent families In fact one story highlights a rich man who willed his house to be transformed into a convent in order to house his large number of female relatives The newly minted nuns could still keep most of their belongings by giving them to the abbess who returns them on loan to the woman Austerity was not typical for these Italian convents but they still had their share of chafing restrictions One of these restrictions is the somewhat hypocritical views of what a nun should occupy her time with Many chose music in fact when a woman becomes a full nun she is considered a choir nun first But for some reason women singing was considered dangerous promoting vanity for the singer and distracting her from her true audience God and not the townspeople who flocked in the street outside to hear the beautiful melodies One story seeks to punish a nun who became too obsessed with music and not for the glory of God alone Their punishment for beautiful polyphonic music was met with opposition from their Bishop first restricting the freuency of the singing to just special feast days then to monophonic music only to be heard during services This act completely silences a once renowned choir so of course there would be pushback Why should embroidery and poetry be considered holy and fit occupations and music as flirting with the Devil What I found by reading this book is there is no straight answer because the opinion and the treatment of the music tended to vary by town Bishop or the makeup of the Sacred Congregation in Rome This must have been maddening for the nuns Another thing this book points out is how bored these nuns likely were They could invent a scandal just to alleviate some of the crushing monotony of monastic life There were only a few things a nun could do within the walls of their convent and I am sure they got old pretty uickly One story depicts a group of nuns who create a scenario of a missing viola involving folk magic to find out who stole it in addition to a great deal of finger pointing Another nun sneaks out of her convent at night to attend the opera as that sort of entertainment would never have come to her So while some internal disagreements and inappropriate acts were just that they could be used as fodder for an official inuest which was much dramatic and entertaining and could go on for months The book Monson has produced is very entertaining Reaching into history for stories about people who didn t always follow the rules of the Church to the letter connects to how the Church is operating today While the transgressions are different such as the excommunication of three nuns who got ordained as priests or forcing out a group of nuns protesting the closing of their convent the same external Church hierarchy is still present Rome can issue edicts all it wants but enforcing them locally is even difficult today without an intimidating enforcer or inuisitor Therefore nuns will continue to behave badly in the point of view of the Church in my opinion primarily because of the ineuality of male and female religious that was as present in the Seventeenth Century as it is today

I will always have a soft spot for nuns I don t necessarily know why Perhaps the contemplative life appeals to me and I enjoy reading stories of women who have taken this plunge When it comes to Nun s Behaving Badly however it s not the contemplative life put on display it s a glorious gossip filled expose into the lives of a select few nuns within the convents of Italy during the 16th 17th centuriesThe book starts out very strong telling the most salacious tale at the very beginning Since noble women could often be consigned to the convent with little desire for religious life some methods of getting out of a forced religious vocation can range from passive aggressive letter writing to full blown arson But where the book seems to start out at its crescendo the rest of the stories seem to fall a little flat compared to the first one Folk magic witchcraft and carnival are woven into the work along with the suspicion of lesbianism that fueled the ire and fantasies of the predominantly male church leadership Overall Nuns Behaving Badly is a micro foray into the realities of the cloistered lives some women led whether through their own consent or not It s an engaging read relying on the same power found in our celebrity rags It was hard for me to put down even as its level of page turnyiness started to fade
