From the end of the Middle Ages to the following centuries, the Clerical Community of Tropea assumed unique and remarkable features that  marked its counter reformist religious physiognomy with a remarkable number of priests and monks. A dynamic element of this internal reality of the church, was the generous availability of the city, mainly of the Noble families, who, with their contributions, largely increased the number of clerical benefits, and contributed to the building of monasteries and churches. On the other hand this redundance in clerical foundations created a closed circle, as in the future the same members of those families or the clergy themselves were the only ones to benefit from that reality, since the church used to choose its city staff from those people.
