The Medici Pope Leo X presided over both events, and was criticized by some for paying more attention to the training of Hanno, his pet elephant, than to resolving issues of reform and division in the Church.
This study day will focus on the 1517 division of the Friars Minor into Conventuals, Observants and, shortly afterward, Capuchins. What were the consequences of these divisions beyond the friars, for the Poor Clares, for communities of the Third Order Regular tradition and the Secular Franciscan Order? Current steps toward reconciliation and collaboration among the Friars will also be explored.
