The foundation of the Humiliatenorden was inspired by Friedrich Heiler. It is similar to a third order with temporal vows. The order is Lutheran in its accentuation of sola gratia, while it is Catholic in its position on the sacrament and the church. In 1946, under the direction of Abbot Richard Walter, the Order was "placed completely in the services of the Una Sancta idea", working for Lutheran - Roman Catholic ecumenism.
