According to the translators, this represents the first time all the authentic writings of Francis and Clare have been brought together into one volume. Those who only know Francis of Assisi through his Canticle of Brother Sun and other short prayers emblazoned on wall plaques, will find here an extensive and mature theology of humility, service to others, and joy. Also included are the letters, the Rule, and the Testament of Clare. Preface by John Vaughn.
An Eighth Day View:
Francis (c. 1182-1226) and Clare (c. 1193-1254) together shaped the spirituality of early 13th-century Europe. Here for the first time in English are their complete writings, brought together in one volume.
