The Order of Friars Minor Capuchin is one of three "First Orders" that reformed from the Franciscan Friars Minor. In order to reclaim the original Habit (Tunic) of St. Francis of Assisi and to return to a tighter observance of the rule established by Francis of Assisi in 1209, Franciscans reformed as Capuchins in 1525.
