Clergy are pillars of neighborhood non secular groups, and Roman Catholic clergymen are probably the essential examples of pastors functioning as political elites. The political technological know-how literature demonstrates that monks (indeed, clergy extra in general) are well-positioned to persuade the devoted, whether this effect is a bit inconsistent. At their middle, monks are opinion leaders and representatives in their church to either the devoted and their neighborhood groups.

But precisely how Catholic clergymen ascertain the political acts and attitudes linked to their elite position continues to be a puzzle. we propose it's the made from an interactive institutional, social, and mental milieu, the complexity of which has no longer been totally assessed within the extant literature. although a few may possibly wish to contemplate clergymen as profiles in braveness working above the political fray, the institutional and private realities of priest existence frequently forces them to accommodate the political realm. In doing so, monks are variably conscious of assorted principals, or reference teams, that signify particular dimensions in their specialist context. Drawing on a chain of randomized experiments on samples of Roman Catholic monks within the US and eire, we discover that clergymen cognitively draw on various expert and private cues in responding to their employer’s institutional personal tastes. moreover, how monks characterize their church's political personal tastes to parishioners seems to be an issue of individual-level discretion.
