Description

The Order of the Holy Trinity for the Redemption of Captives (Trinitarian Order) was founded in France in 1198 during the pontificate of Innocent III. Most famously, the order's rule states that one third of all its income should be reserved for the redemption of Christian captives, with the other two thirds being reserved for poor relief and the sustenance of the brothers, respectively.
