In spite of the promulgation of these strict regulations in 1326, the General Chapter held at Grassa in 1335 again had to legislate measures against brethren who had private possessions, by testament or inheritance or purchase, outside the monastery.
It was decreed that none of those concerned could stay with these possessions beyond three days continuously, without incurring the penalty of apostasy from the Order, unless, in particular cases, due permission was obtained from the Vicar General and the Definitors of their respective Augustinian Province.
The Chapter General held at Siena in 1338 strictly enforced the regulations concerning the administration of money as provided in the Constitutions against possible abuses.
Under penalty of removal from office, no Prior was allowed to receive, handle, or spend money belonging to the monastery, nor to interfere in any way with the office of the Procurator beyond the regulations of the Constitutions.
In addition, the Prior acting contrary to this decree was to be incapable, for the next three years, of any office to which the care of souls was annexed. At this Chapter also extensive regulations were made for reforming studies in general. Finally, special regulations for the house at Paris were added, in particular for the administration of money belonging to the community and to the fund for the Augustinians who were there as students or teaching staff.
As a means of protection for the brethren and in order to preclude scandals which might arise for the Order, the General Chapter of Toulouse in 1341 enforced a disciplinary precept of the Augustine's Rule and the Augustinian Constitutions. Accordingly, it was ruled that no brother was allowed to leave the monastery without a companion. Transgressors of this regulation were to be considered as apostates from the Order.
Towards the middle of the fourteenth century the foundation of a new Augustinian priory (house) was permitted only if sustenance for at least twelve friars was guaranteed. This regulation ended the ideal of a brotherhood unfettered by material necessities, free to move quickly to any place where its services were required.
