historical usage of monk
During the Protestant Reformation (from 1530 on), the meaning of monk was extended to refer specifically to members of such orders as Carmelites, Franciscans, and Dominicans, who originally subsisted by begging for alms. These mendicants (from Latin mendīcāre “to beg”) are, technically speaking, called friars, from Old French frere, from Latin frāter “brother.”
