In 1274 the Council of Lyons decreed the end of various "new orders" of Mendicants which had emerged during the great push for evangelism and poverty in the thirteenth-century Latin Church. The Franciscans and Dominicans were explicitly excluded, while the Carmelites and Austin friars were allowed a stay of execution. These last two were eventually able to acquire approval, but other smaller groups, in particular the Friars of the Sack and Pied Friars, were forced to disband.
This book outlines the history of those who were threatened by 1274, tracing the development of the two larger orders down to the Council of Trent, and following the fragmentary sources for the brief histories of the discontinued friaries. For the first time these orders are treated comparatively: the volume offers a total history, from their origins, spirituality and pastoral impact, to their music, buildings and runaways.

About the Author:

FRANCES ANDREWS is Professor in Mediaeval History at the University of St Andrews.

Review:

Sheds needed light on an obscure aspect of medieval mendicancy and is a great resource for those studying medieval religious institutional and social history. --Religious Studies

A fine study. [...] Deals elegantly with the difficulty of reconstructing the past from primarily normative sources and makes deft use of such evidence of personal experience and opinion as is extant. [...] In investigating this through a rare comparative study, Andrews has performed a great service to students of medieval religion. --English Historical Review

A history that is both lively and definitive. [...] This is a very fine book, rescuing from obscurity an entire chapter of the medieval past. --The Tablet
