Franciscan History

A Poor Man's Legacy: An Anthology of Franciscan Poverty

edited by Cyprian Lynch

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Although this anthology of Franciscan poverty contains 187 selections grouped under 149 entries, it is no more than a modest sample of extant writings on the subject. Yet, because it includes examples of a wide variety of literary forms, authored by members of all branches of the Franciscan family representing ten language groups and all eight centuries of Franciscan history, it clearly demonstrates the continuity of the Franciscan tradition of poverty.

Bearing Christ to the People: the Franciscan Sisters, Their Origins, History and Persisting Values

by Pierre Péano, OFM

Additional DescriptionMore Details

While much has been written on the origins, history, and development of the Franciscan Movement, less research has been done to trace the origins and growth of congregations of religious women who desired to follow in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi.
Fr. Pierre Peano, OFM, was one of the first to demonstrate how the charism of Francis perdured in the history and lives of Franciscan Religious women. His book will become part of the historical legacy of the Franciscan Order. Religious women who have participated in the renewal of their own communities will find Peano's research a direct link with the Franciscan women who went before them.

Colette of Corbie (1381-1447): Learning and Holiness

by Elisabeth Lopez, translated by Joanna Waller
 
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Released for the first time in English.
Lopez’s book, originally published in French in 1994, is a serious study of Colette and her reform movement of the Poor Clare Sisters. “Lopez’s book is a necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand the many faceted aspects of the history of the Poor Clares,” says Pacelli Millane, O.S.C. Clarisses de Valleyfield. Colette of Corbie is one of the few texts written depicting the historical context and spiritual depth of the reform which offered women of the Second Order the opportunity to return to the observance of the Rule of St. Clare. “It is really wonderful that Elisabeth Lopez’s book has now been translated into English, especially because it fills a gap in the history of Franciscan women during the Late Medieval period and specifically of the Poor Clares, whose diversity, spiritual creativity and influence have been emphasized by recent European scholarship,” states André Vauchez.

Eloquence of Sanctity: Rhetoric in Thomas of Celano's 'Vita Prima Sancti Francisci', The

by John P. Bequette
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The Eloquence of Sanctity examines the interrelation between hagiography and rhetoric in one of the most important medieval saints: Thomas of Celano’s Vita Prima Sancti Francisci (The Life of St. Francis). The author contends that Thomas uses figures drawn from the Roman rhetorical tradition to construct his image of Saint Francis and to persuade his audience to seek Francis’s intercession and emulate his life. This book attempts to demonstrate the inherently rhetorical nature of hagiography as well as the ambiguities and limits of language when it attempts to comprehend the sacred.
