Francis of Assisi in His Own Words
The Essential Writings
This item is out of stock.
Reading Francis’ writings is like being “on the road” with him 800 years ago.
Biographies will only take you so far. It’s impossible to truly understand Francis of Assisi without reading his writings. Sweeney has compiled all of the ones that we are most certain come from Francis himself, including his first Rule of life, the Rule he wrote for the Third Order, letters to friends, letters to people in power, messages to all Franciscans, songs, praises, canticles, and his final spiritual Testament. An introduction and explanatory notes throughout the book help to put the writings into historical and theological context.
