Lawrence, St., Regular Canons of

a religious order, said to have been founded by St. Benedict in the 6th century. Its seat was in Dauphine. It was reformed in the 11th century, under the patronage of Odo, count of Savoy. The bishop of Turin in 1065 conferred many gifts upon it, and several popes enriched it with benefactions.
