"named Fratres predicatores or preaching friars because their peculiar office was to preach against heresy. They were also called Black Friars from their wearing a black cross upon a white cloak. They were exempt from episcopal control and were at liberty to confess and give the Sacraments to those who applied to them. What little property belonged to this branch of the order was at the Reformation conveyed by Queen Mary to the provost and magistrates of the city" Lyons Hist. [History] of St Andrews vol. [volume] 1 page 126
