The article has two aims: 1. to propose a theoretical model for the study of the religious communities of Catholic inspiration that arose in Italy in the wake of Vatican Council II (1963-65). These are ‘new’ phenomena generated by strong social ferment and directly promoted not by the ecclesiastical authorities but by prominent religious or secular personalities operating outside the traditional structures. Significant novelties are also apparent in their organizational orders: a widespread and distinctive feature is that they are mixed, or rather composed of men and women, consecrated and secular, single and married, and sometimes of Christians of different confessions; 2. to furnish indications for the study of Catholic religious organizations. Examined in light of the organizational literature are the connections among issues of particular importance, and with a long theoretical traditions in this field of inquiry: legitimation, innovation, efficiency, and success
