About this Book
The Prophet contains: The Book of Praises by Bernard of Bessa The Sayings of the Companions of Blessed Francis The Mirror of Perfection: Smaller and Larger Versions Tribulations of the Order by Angelo Clareno Liturgical Texts for the Feast of the Stigmata The Deeds of Francis and His Companion by Ugolino Boniscambi The Little Flowers The Kinship of Francis by Arnold of Sarrant Related Documents The Prophet is the third volume of the long-awaited and best-selling project Francis of Assisi: Early Documents. All three volumes contain helpful introductions to each section, colored maps, cross references, and extensive annotation. A complete index of all three volumes will be available in this last volume. Praise of Volume 1, FRANCIS OF ASSISI ... The Saint New City Press releases the first volume in its projected three-volume collection of the early writings of St. Francis of Assisi. Edited by Franciscan scholars, Francis of Assisi: Early Documents contains new translations of such well-known writings as The Canticle of the Creatures, biographies of Francis by his contemporaries, and The Versified Life of Saint Francis by Henri d'Avraches, translated here for the first time. Publishers Weekly Although its painstaking introductions and annotations are intended for scholars, the readings themselves are as vibrant, accessible, instructive and charming as St. Francis himself must have been. America This volume contains writings of Francis on such diverse subjects as Prayer Before the Crucifix, Exhortations to Clergy, Rule for Hermitages, and A Salutation of the Virtues. The writings afford wonderful insight into the theology and basic concerns of this important figure in church history. Library Journal The words of Francis and the Life of Francis by Thomas of Celano come alive in these translations as never before. The Sacred Exchange becomes a new performance in the theater of the readers mind. Henry of Avranches' poetic version of Francis' life casts him as a classical hero, a Christian successor to Odysseus and Aeneas.... In this volume we are given a new song of Francis for our time. Ingrid Peterson, O.S.F. This is a magnificent collection of texts which illuminate the person of Saint Francis and the beginnings of the Franciscan Order. The translators provide a wonderful balance between fluent language and scholarly apparatus. Brian Patrick McGuire Roskilde University, Denmark
