Twenty-fourth of twenty-five children born to an Italian clothdyer in 1347, Catherine packed many lifetimes and many personae into her short lifetime of thirty-three years: servant of the poor, major player in papal politics, leader of Dominican nuns, mystic. Catherine wrote this narrative as a result of a five-day vision; it is our chief evidence for Catherine's place as one of only three women (soon Therese of Lisieux will join that company) to be declared ''Doctor'' by the Roman Church. Preface by Giuliana Cavollini.
An Eighth Day View:
Catherine of Siena (1347-1380), wrote her crowning spiritual work, for "the instruction and encouragement of all those whose spiritual welfare was her concern."
