When the Jesuits appeared in the city of Castello, they were accompanied by pious women who wanted to follow their example. This monastery was not counted among the others because the sisters had to support themselves by alms.

Early Documents

In 1410, a notarial document of Giovanni del du ser Monte mentions a house of "poverelle, in the district "del Pelagallo." In 1429, a notarial document of Pier Matteo di Niccola di ser Marco Vanni indicates that these "Poverelle" were Jesuits, and had received a tenament with a cloister in the Vicolo Argenti.
