The Order was formed in Lombardy in 1233 under Papal Authority. They followed The Dominican Rule (of prayer). They did not live in chastity, poverty or live in a Community. Their primary role was to be the persecution of heretics with the Region. The Order accepted both Noble and Commoner. They wore the Black and White Mantle of The Dominican Order (with their insignia attached). They worked for a time in Parma. They were active during The Albigensian Crusades. However, by 1261 – all record of The Order disappears.
