The Eloquence of Sanctity examines the interrelation between hagiography and rhetoric in one of the most important medieval saints: Thomas of Celano's Vita Prima Sancti Francisci (The Life of St. Francis). The author contends that Thomas uses figures drawn from the Roman rhetorical tradition to construct his image of Saint Francis and to persuade his audience to seek Francis intercession and emulate his life. This book attempts to demonstrate the inherently rhetorical nature of hagiography as well as the ambiguities and limits of language when it attemts to comprehend the sacred.
