Benedict of Alignan
Benedict founded a short-lived order, the Brothers of the Virgin, which was suppressed by the Council of Lyon (1274), and died a Franciscan. His writings include a letter to Pope Innocent IV, De constructione Castri Saphet, and De Summa Trinitate et Fide Catholica in Decretalibus (circa 1260).
