Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how a practice of mendicancy developed within the circles that would eventually form the Dominican order, and particularly its importance to the founder, Dominic of Caleruega. It considers the different configurations that mendicancy took in the Predicatio against heretics in the Midi, and in the process of transformation of that Predicatio into the Ordo predicatorum. From this retelling of history (or at least, a view of history), the chapter describes that mendicancy itself was subject to the same social pressures as all other ideals, evolving over time, not meaning the same to individuals at the same time, or between different times. The agreementwith Fulk over the tithes that supported the community was still maintained in 1217, where the parishes destined to contribute to the preachers were identified as those with more than ten parishioners.
