Capuche[edit]

Young Charles, hope you're well. I was surprised to see this article missing. Just took me a few hours to do that, I've lost my old diligence of editing, I find it fiddly writing articles nowadays! The source says something about brown becoming the norm by the 19th century yet I associate medieval monks with brown. Can you check the facts on this and expand it if you can as I remember the Franciscans were in your realm. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:21, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: Good to hear from you. I've never found it easy to keep the medieval mendicant orders sorted out: Blackfriars were Dominicans, Greyfriars Franciscans, Whitefriars were Carmelites. The other medieval mendicant order was the Servites. The Capuchins, being 16th century, were formed as part of the Franciscans, and were called Brownfriars (and hence the coffee connection). Of course monks generally means something different from friars, both being regular clergy subject to a rule, but operating differently. To complicate matters of religious habit, it seems that Franciscans do wear brown, but St Francis began by wearing grey sackcloth, peasant dress in Italy of that time. The brown woollen habit is associated with penitence. Charles Matthews (talk) 06:50, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying Charles. Sometimes when you can only find scraps (at least with what you're permitted to read online) it can get contradictory or confusing. As long as the article is accurate! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 07:47, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
