Dan Title

"Dom" is the title of the religious of the Benedictine and Cistercian orders; an abbreviation of "Dominus," originally applied to the popes, later to bishops, and finally to monks. "Don" is used in Italy for all clerks except Mendicant Friars and Regular Clerks. The form "Dan" was employed in medieval English, and "Monsieur" has always been used in France.
