Additional DescriptionMore Details

First Encounter with Francis of Assisi: Damien Vorreux, who died in 1988, was a French scholar who began to publish French translations of the early Franciscan documents in the early 1950s. His deep knowledge of those documents and his understanding of Francis were the inspiration for this classic presentation of Francis of Assisi. Published in French in 1973 and first offered in English by Franciscan Press in 1979, Jean-François Godet-Calogeras – who worked with Vorreux – combines the latest scholarship and the most current English translation of the Early Documents with his own translation of the writings of Francis in offering this new edition of First Encounter with Francis of Assisi. This short text is an excellent introduction to Francis and the world in which he lived.

“Although this little book is about 40 years old, it continues to deliver what its title promises: a first encounter with Francis of Assisi for those who do not know much about him, but after having seen or heard him mentioned somewhere – most of the time related to legendary stories – are intrigued by that man of a small Italian city who lived eight hundred years ago. “First Encounter with Francis of Assisi” does not have the pretention to be a biography, but is definitely a concise and solid introduction to Francis, describing the world of his time, the milestones of his journey of life, and the essential elements of his spirituality.

In addition to providing a basic outline of his life, the author explores major aspects of his continuing influence in our time. While many historic interpretations of events in his life have been uncovered since this was first published, the Franciscan Institute wants to keep this study available as a tool that can help many—particularly collaborators in Franciscan works and institutions—know this amazing Christian better.”

This first of three volumes by Professor Dalarun, each originally published in either Italian or French, represents a highly important and unique contribution to a series of viatal questions concerning the Franciscan movement in the Middle Ages. This publication will certainly generate lively discussion and a deeper understanding of the Franciscan phenomenon. In a tone that is profoundly personal and to the point, Dalarun offers to serve as a methodological guide in the renewed interest in the famous “Franciscan Question”: how best to read, interpret and relate the early biographies to the historical Francis.

Saint Francis of Assisi

By John R. H. Moorman

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Anglican Bishop and renowned medievalist John Moorman writes in his preface to this terrific, short biography of Francis of Assisi that Francis has something to say to people of all kinds. He was a mystic with a special interest in, and understanding of, nature. He was a poet, the first to write in verse in any modern language. He was a man of great courage, risking his life in carrying out his ideals, He inspired large numbers of men to give away all that they possessed and live as vagabonds, begging their bread from door to door, All these things were important, and all combine to make him a very remarkable man. But perhaps the thing about him which appeals to us most today is the challenge which he threw down to the standards and values of the ordinary, secular life of man.

We Saw Brother Francis

by Francis de Beer

Additional DescriptionMore Details

De Beer does not aim to examine the saint’s life from testimonies written once that life on earth had been concluded; rather he inquires how those who knew Francis first hand encountered him while he was still alive. He attempts to discover how Francis's contemporaries experienced him close up. How did they criticize him? How did they imagine him?
