Calvarists, or Missionary Priests of Calvary

a monastic congregation, established in 1630 by Hubert Charpentier, licentiate of the Sorbonne, on Mount Bethasam, in France, for propagating Romanism by missions. In 1638 they united with the Association for the Propagation of Faith, from which they separated again in 650. In 1664 they were re-formed, and united with the congregation of St. Sulpice. The congregation disappeared in 1790, but arose again in 18 6.
