Featured Term (selected at random):
Canons Regular of Prémontré, also called Norbertines. They were founded in 1120 by St. Norbert at Prémontré, near Laon, France, approved in 1126, and again in 1617-24. Their focus is on solemn liturgical worship, missions, parochial ministry, and the education of youth. Based on the Rule of St. Augustine, with some Cistercian influences, the constitutions include certain austerities, e.g., abstinence from meat.
