St. Francis is remembered for the simplicity of his life and for his deep sympathy with all living creatures. The spectacular bi-level church built in his memory on the side of a mountain in Assisi is full of frescoes by Giotto, Cimabue, Lorenzetti and Simone Martini that illustrate scenes from his life and from the Bible. With many full-color photographs, including details and full-page illustrations, this book provides complete documentation of the history and decorative program of the Basilica.

From Library Journal:

Italian scholar Lunghi provides a chronologically organized overview of the basilica of St. Francis in Assisi from its inception to the completion of its many wall decorations. Offering the most complete mural decoration of the 13th and 14th centuries found in Italy, the church represents at once the culmination of medieval culture and the dawn of the Renaissance art. Scholastic, Byzantine, and humanistic at the same time, the building gathers elements of French Gothic architecture, rare in Italy, and reasserts ancient Roman fresco painting within a great social dynamic. Works by then-revolutionary Florentine artists Cimabuc and Giotto, as well as the Sienese Lorenzetti and Simone Martini, are offered here in 232 high-quality color reproductions, many showing enlarged details in full-page placements. Luciano Bellosi's Giotto and Cecilia Jannella's Simone Martini, two books currently available in the publisher's resonably priced "Library of Great Masters," would complement this title. Recommended for special and public collections.?Ellen Bates, New York
