Militia Christi is a continuation of a centuries-old Catholic movement founded by Saint Dominic as a movement for laity, envisaged as a kind of army in suppressing insurgents inspired by the Albigensian heresy. Saints Catherine of Siena and Rose of Lima were both members of the original movement.[1]

St. Dominic is more famous as the founder of the Order of Preachers, more commonly known as the Dominicans.
