- Superior General is the direct translation of the Latin Praepositus Generalis, although it is easier to understand its meaning if the word order is reversed as Praepistus Provinciales is translated Provincial Superior and Praepositus locales is translated as Local superior. Therefore General Superior means superior of the order in general rather than a specific location or community and not a supreme military commander. The General Superior is mandated by a General Congregation, the highest governance unit in the Society to govern the Society on a day-to-day basis together with his counsellors and other governing structures of the Society.
