Reviews - What do our customers think?
Indispensable and inspiring English-language refeence  May 18, 2008
Scholars and lovers of Francis of Assisi will find much to treasure in this first volume of the early documents series. Detailed footnotes add to the reader's understanding of Francis and early Franciscans, while providing insight into the editors' specific decisions. All of the saint's writings are included, as are the preserved texts of his earliest followers. This outstanding work is entirely adequate on its own, but also serves as a superb supplement (and corrective) to the many related publications available. Essential to the academic and spiritual study of Francis.
 
The set of books to read about the Saint  Aug 30, 2000
This first volume of a projected 3 volume edition of documents pertaining to the life and order of Saint Francis will easily become the source for all followers of Christ through the inspiration of this timeless saint. It provides the best translations and most recent scholarship on the life and times of the saint. In many way St. Francis is the most universal and beloved of Chirstian saints. Often called to second Christ as his life exemplifies the ideals of Christian service. Highly recommended.
