RECOLLECT: The designation (from recolligere, "to gather again") applied to certain congregations inside different monastic orders, because their members returned to the primitive strict rule of life. So in. the latter part of the sixteenth century, there were recollects of the Augustinians, and among the Franciscans there were recollects of both sexes.
