One of the four tribes of Mendicants, or begging friars; so named from Mount Carmel, formerly inhabited by Elias, Elisha, and the children of the prophets; from whom this order pretends to descend in uninterrupted succession. Their habit was at first white; but the pope Honorius IV. commanded them to change it for that of the Minims. They wear no linen shirts, but, instead of them, linsey-wolsey.
