Thoughts on Francis Of Assisi.
Thoughts on Francis Of Assisi
American University Studies; Series VII: Theology and Religion; Volume 339
Troncelliti affords Assisi the greatest respect, but reminds us that the Church made Francis a famous saint with a spectacular canonization at the same time it ignored Francis's original and revolutionary concepts often deeply opposed to the Church's politics at the time. This book details the Franciscan Order's makeover devised by the Catholic Church after Francis's death, the works of saints and demons in medieval space, Franciscan women, and the unbearable lightness of Francis's forma vitae.
