SUBJECT Franciscan
REFERENCE ID 300148096
NOTES Largest religious order in the Roman Catholic Church, founded by St. Francis of Assisi in the early 13th century. Francis' strict and simple rule emphasized the vow of poverty, a condition that caused a great deal of conflict. St. Francis called his followers to wander and preach as well as to help the poor and sick. The impact of the early street preachers and especially of their founder was enormous, so that within 10 years the Franciscans numbered 5000. St. Bonaventure (1257-74) came up with a moderate interpretation of St. Francis' rule that bridged the different schools of thought that had developed over the years; for this reason he is sometimes called the second founder of the order.
