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.”



“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.”
