(Latin: mantellum, cloak)

Name applied to the Third Order of the Servants of Mary, or Servites, because of the short-sleeved habit adopted to facilitate work. It was founded by Saint Juliana Falconieri, 1284, for the care of the sick and other works of mercy. Education and the instruction of converts also engage the nuns, who have houses in Italy, France, Spain, England, Canada, and the United States.
