"Members" vs. "Monastics"[edit]

Not all religious are monastics. For example the title "provincial superior" which is a type of member of a religious community specifically is not a monastic as provinces only exist in non-monastic communities. >> M.P.Schneider,LC (parlemusfeci) 22:56, 12 July 2014 (UTC)


What is the criteria for the current categorization? Clerks Regulars are not Canon regulars. Enclosed and Cenobitic are types of Monastic. Second orders started with Mendicant, Deacons are also Secular clergy, etc... This is very confusing.

Shouldn't they be separated by actual definition type? What about this?
