Abstract
This dissertation is a study of the life of Myom (1932 - ), an eminent Korean nun and educator of contemporary Korean nuns. The main purpose in studying the life of Myom was to investigate how Korean nuns have revitalized their order over the past few decades, and what the key factors were in the transformation of the new images and roles of contemporary Korean nuns.
