  • Title: La minorita in Chiara d'Assisi [The Poor Clares occasionally were called "minorite" sisters in early thirteenth-century texts. Gregory IX, however, restricted the term to Franciscan males, and he denied the Clares use of a version of the Franciscan habit. Clare herself seems to have preferred to call her community the "poor sisters." Many later Francscian women, including some of the order's saints, did not have the foundress' sense of being lowly and subordinate to all. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
