"Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista, reportedly upset about their mother superior's authoritarian ways, scratched her in the face and threw her to the ground at Santa Clara convent near Bari in an incident in July that was kept quiet until now." - Brietbart.com
This isn't that unusual in history. Teresa of Avila encountered opposition at the Incarnation when she was appointed prioress. John of the Cross was imprisoned, and there are many stories of rebellious monks and nuns and even murder in medieval monasteries. A few years ago a group of Carmelites rebelled against the prioress of their monastery because she was going to allow television in the cloister. They barricaded themselves in the infirmary. I can't remember what happened to them however. I recall one of the rebels was a Sr. John of the Cross, a nun in simple vows at the time. (Update: I found the story here.)
Obedience, obedience, obedience, ladies.
