The official title of the branch of the Franciscan Order is Friars Minor Conventual. They are known as Greyfriars in Britain, the Commonwealth and Ireland, Cordeliers (“cord bearers”) in French-speaking countries, Minoriten (“minors”) in countries where German is spoken, or simply as Franciscans in most other parts of the world. The Conventual followers of Francis chose to minister in the heart of the city rather than in more remote hermitages; they banded together in concentrated communities rather than wandering as itinerant preachers.
