Pope Innocent III gives verbal approval to the rule of the order founded by St. Francis of Assisi. One of the primary reasons for Innocent III accepting the new monastic order so quickly is their expression of absolute obedience to the pope and the church hierarchy.

Another factor may be their zeal for promoting church orthodoxy, making thema valuable tool to combat heresy and dissent around Europe.
