Saint Francis of Assisi is one of the most recognizable Catholic saints. He founded the Franscican Order, noted for its mendicant practices and evangelizing to the poor. Saint Francis established these practices in the thirteenth century and built his order while traveling across the Mediterranean. Today he is also associated with nature, animals, and the environment. He is also the namesake of the city of San Francisco. In this volume, a collection of works describing the life of Saint Francis of Assisi are presented alongside excellent illustrations. The collection is popularly called The Little Flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi. Most scholars agree the author was Ugolini Brunforte, a Franscican Friar from the thirteenth century. They also tend to agree that the texts were compiled from popular retellings a generation after Saint Francis’s death. They are integral to the history and practices of Saint Francis of Assisi, providing insight into his canonization by the Catholic church. They are celebrated for their eloquent prose and inspirational details.

This illustrated edition is in very good condition. In the original decorated cloth, very good with only fading to spine. Text block fine. In the original slipcase, about-fine with only chipping to edges. With the publisher’s original Sandglass pamphlet laid in.
