Pierre Hélyot, known as Père Hippolyte (January 1660 – January 5, 1716) was a Franciscan historian who wrote a summary of monastic orders and Catholic secular congregations. His 'History of Religious and Military Monastic Orders and Secular Congregations', the fruit of twenty-five years of work, was published between 1714 and 1719. The parts published after Hélyot's death were with the assistance of Maximilien Bullot. This lithograph is a visualization of part of this work.
