About this title


Booklist calls this massively monumental, yet readable biography of Saint Francis of Assisi, "a classic vita". Helen Moak's translation of this masterpiece is excellent as it includes the "scenic details from the late 12th to early 13th century Umbria that Fortini knows so astonishingly well".--Best Sellers.
