    (1) Knights of the Name of Jesus, also known as Seraphim, founded in 1334 by the Queens of Norway and Sweeden to defend their respective countries from the onslaught of heathen hordes. They did not survive the Reformation.
    (2) Sisters of the Name of Jesus comprise six congregations founded in France during the nineteenth century in the Dioceses of Besançon, with mother-house at Grande-Fontaine, Paris; of Valence (1815 or 1825), mother-house at Lorial; of Rodez, mother-house at Ste-Radegonde; of Toulouse (1827); and of Marseilles (1852). These sisters devote themselves chiefly to the work of teaching and caring for the sick.
    (3) Confraternity of the Name of Jesus, formed by the amalgamation of the Portuguese Confraternity of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, founded by Andreas Díaz, O.P., in 1432, with the Spanish Confraternity of the Most Holy Name of God, established in the sixteenth century. Approbation was granted by Popes Paul V (1606) and Innocent XI (1678), and the confraternity was enriched with indulgences and placed under the Dominican general.
