Moral authority is an authority based on principles and values that are independent of written laws, and considered more fundamental and lasting. These principles, which can be of metaphysical or of religious nature, are considered to be normative for behaviour, whether they are or are not also embodied in written laws, and even if the community is ignoring or violating them.
