A pioneering study of the art of the Franciscan order that shows how
Franciscan theological, liturgical, pastoral and missionary strategies were
formulated and implemented visually, not by words but by images, by using
contextualization and introducing gender and culture specific visual
traits. The essays in this volume probe the art and visual culture of the
early Franciscan movement to reveal insights and nuances of the life and
power of this revolutionary phase of theCatholic religion. The essays by
the scholars in this book explore the historical, social, theological and
philosophical persprectives of Franciscan art.
