Exclaustration
(143 words)

[German Version]

is the temporary separation of one who professes eternal vows (IV) from an institutional order. Exclaustration differs from secularization (CIC cc. 688–693). It can result at the request of the one who professes or by compulsion for very serious reasons (CIC c. 686, cc. 489, 490; CCEO 548). Exclaustration does not free from the vows, but from duties that are irreconcilable with the new situation. It invalidates active and passive electoral rights (CIC c. 687).
