This represents volume 5 in the collection of the Complete Works of Saint Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer. The authors have done a thorough critical analysis and legal-historical commentary of the original text which was first published in 1944 by the founder of Opus Dei. The subject matter of St. Josemaría Escrivá’s theological-juridical study was the quasi-episcopal jurisdiction exercised for centuries by the abbess of this Burgos monastery. The study was the result of a careful study of original sources and documents, moreover it was enriched and enlivened, as the author himself points out in the prologue of the first edition, with anecdotes which are to be found throughout the book.
