Father Cornelius

During the middle of the 15th century six Grey Friars of Observance under the leadership of Father Cornelius who had been born in Zierikzee arrived from the Low Countries to set up friaries in Scotland. One of the friars Father John Richardson had been a student at the University of Paris. The Franciscans were well received when they arrived as they fed the poor and practiced medicine on a scientific basis.
