Fraticelli

A group within the Franciscan Order during the Middle Ages which insisted on a very strict observance of the rule of poverty and vigorously opposed the decrees of John XXII which held that Christ and His apostles owned property. They were quite active in Italy and S France. Wherever they appeared they were hunted down by the Inquisition and were regarded as heretical.
