What is the meaning of this expression ("delle sette")?

Examples:

"lo colloca d'un tratto mille miglia al di sopra delle sette"

"con tutti i difetti di ribellione delle sette"

Any help would be appreciated!

    If the beginning of your incomplete sentence, as far as I can find on the net, is:
    «Ma quello che distingue subito S. Francesco dagli eretici e lo colloca d'un tratto mille miglia al di sopra delle sette»
    here "sette" is not the number "seven" but the plural of "setta", which in english is "sect" as religious sect.
