  • I know abbots who are priests had jurisdiction. But I also know Abbesses have no jurisdiction. But could a lay abbot have jurisdiction?

  • It's an interesting question, but apparently moot since 1078.



    Quote
    The Council of Poitiers (1078) finally obliged all Abbots under pain of deprivation to receive priest's orders. (Thomassin, Pt. I, I, iii, passim.)

    excerpted from https://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01015c.htm



    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer
