Colorites were a congregation of Augustinian monks, founded in the 16th century by Bernard of Rogliano, in Calabria. The name is said to have been derived from Colorito, a hill in the district of Naples, on which there is a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The order was not fully established until 1591, and a few years later they avowed submission to the general of the Augustinians. Their habit consisted of a darkcolored gown and a mantle that reached only to the knees.
