Miscellaneous Information
 

Douceline is also associated with the foundation of allied communities in Hyères (c. 1240 and 1241). Most secondary works focus quite narrowly on Douceline. For transcriptions of some of the documents (grants and donations, papal letters - including the series of documents issued by John XXII relevant to the Beguines) from the Archives Bouches-du-Rhône ( as well as other Provençal archives and collections) bearing on the community as a whole, see Albanes’ “Pièces Justificatives,” Figure del primo francescanesimo in Provenza. Ugo e Douceline di Digne., pp 258 ff.
