Are  there nuns who are not Catholic?  Or, restated, are the counterparts of  
>Catholic< nuns, in other religions, titled  differently?

There are "Sisters" in the Lutheran Church, and there is an order of caring  
women in the Episcopal church (I think).  Anybody know where the word "Nun"  
came from?
