In Liturgy, Books and Franciscan Identity in Medieval Umbria, Anna Welch explores how Franciscan friars engaged with manuscript production networks operating in Umbria in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries to produce the missals essential to their liturgical lives. A micro-history of Franciscan liturgical activity, this study reassesses methodologies pertinent to manuscript studies and reflects on both the construction of communal identity through ritual activity and historiographic trends regarding this process.
Welch focuses on manuscripts decorated by the ateliers of the Maestro di Deruta-Salerno (active c. 1280) and Maestro Venturella di Pietro (active c. 1317), in particular the Codex Sancti Paschalis, a missal now owned by the Australian Province of the Order of Friars Minor.

About the Author:

Her research interests include Franciscan history and spirituality, book history, and the relationship between ritual and identity in medieval Christian communities.

Review:

"In 2016, our knowledge of Franciscan history was enriched by Brill's publication of Anna Welch's Liturgy, Books and Franciscan Identity in Medieval Umbria. Based on an analysis of late thirteenth- and early fourteenth-century missals, this book considers the role that liturgy played in forming and preserving the communal identity of early Franciscans living in Umbria. [...] This illuminating case study is a welcome analysis of a subject that has for years merited far more academic attention, and serves as a long overdue corrective to previous scholarship. Welch's thorough knowledge of the extensive manuscript evidence and her masterful interaction with the secondary literature are truly impressive. This monograph belongs on the shelves of all scholars interested in Franciscan history, liturgical history, medieval art history, and Umbrian religious and social history." Andrew J. G. Drenas, University of Massachusetts Lowell, in: Renaissance Quarterly 71, no. 1 2018): 347-348.
