The Constitutions of 1575

The Capuchin Constitutions after the Council of Trent

 The General Chapter of 1575 decided to revise the Constitutions mainly to incorporate relevant material from the Decrees of the Council of Trent. The text, in Italian,  was published in 1577. A legally meticulous style, strikingly different from earlier versions of the Constitutions, is quite evident in some parts of the text.

Published again Le prime Costituzioni dei Frati Minori Cappuccini, Rome, 1913, an anastatic reproduction of the first edition is in Constitutions Ordinis Fratrum Minorum Capuccinorum saeculorum decursu proulgatae, vol. I: Constitutiones Antiquae (1529-1643), Editio anastatica, Rome, Capuchin General Curia, 1980, p. 143-218.
