  • Title: Le Clarisse nelle Marche gli insediamenti del XIII secolo [Houses of Poor Clares began appearing in the March of Ancona by the middle of the thirteenth century. Their early histories can be documented from privileges granted by popes, cardinals, and bishops. Among the most frequent grants were those for indulgences and immunity from episcopal juristiction. Houses of Clares spred in the March early on, often developing in larger towns that also had nearby convents of friars to provide for their spiritual care. Title note provided by Feminae.].
